What's On

Spem in Alium - Durham Singers

Saturday 6 April at 7:30 PM

This is music by composers whose lives took them into different musical and spiritual moods but who speak clearly across the centuries, shedding colour and light on one another, and culminating in a musical tapestry as extraordinary as any Renaissance stained-glass window would have been to a pilgrim coming to a Cathedral for the first time on a sunlit morning. The programme for the concert will include Howell's Requiem and music by Tallis, including Spem in Alium.

Tallis: Savator Mundi I
Howells: Requiem
Vaughan Williams: Silence and Music
Tallis: Sancte Deus
Vaughan Williams: Rest
Tallis: Loquebantur
Vaughan Williams: Mr Valiant for Truth
Tallis: Spem in Alium
Conducted by Francesca Massey and Julian Wright
