The Cantus Ensemble to performance at St Gabriel’s church – 7.30pm, 4th December
Join the Cantus Ensemble for a performance one of the most-loved works in the choral canon: Brahms’s life-affirming setting of the Requiem. Brahms’s choral masterwork is performed in the composer’s own arrangements for two pianists, alongside a meditative selection of music by John Tavener, Arvo Pärt and the renaissance polyphonist William Byrd. Under the baton of Dominic Brennan , the choir is joined for the Brahms by Ferrier Award-winning soprano Jessica Cale and baritone Jerome Knox (winner of the 2020 London Handel Festival). Acclaimed pianists Adam Luke Dickson and Sachika Taniyama Errington assume the demanding and, at times, virtuosic roles of accompanists. The programme is:
- Tavener – Song for Athene
- Pärt – The woman with the alabaster box
- Byrd – Emendemus in melius
- Pärt – The Deer’s Cry
- Brahms – Ein deutsches Requiem
- Dominic Brennan (director)
