Bristol Choral Society Summer Concert at Bristol Cathedral

Bristol Choral Society Summer Concert at Bristol Cathedral

Choral delights abound in this June concert, with a programme featuring Bernstein, Duruflé and Whitacre.

10 June 2017 –  |

This summer, the Bristol Choral Society is putting on a concert of Bernstein's Chichester Psalms, Duruflé's Requiem, and Whitacre's Five Hebrew Love Songs within the majestic walls of Bristol Cathedral.

Duruflé’s Requiem is a setting that stands outside time; a work floating free of gravity in a world shaped by the supple fluidity of plainsong. Where better then to experience its affecting reconciliation of ancient and modern than beneath the soaring vaults of Bristol’s great Augustinian foundation? Raising the curtain is Leonard Bernstein’s very different homage to his Jewish roots where jazz and a hint of the blues mingle with a potent amalgamation of affirmation and anxiety. Harp and percussion lend pungent Old Testament colouring bringing us full circle in a season that opened with Walton’s equally exotic ‘Belshazzar’, and ends in a summertime encounter with the eternal that promises to be out of this world!
 
The Bristol Choral Society will be performing at Bristol Cathedral on Saturday 10 June. Ticket prices range from £11 to £25 (10% discount for Senior Citizens), with tickets available at just £5 for those under age 25. For tickets call 01452 768928 or see here for booking and more information.
