Look forward to a perfect evening of music with the Danesborough Chorus

Danesborough Chorus performing Messiah

There's plenty ahead to brighten your spirits after the winter gloom - daffodils, ducklings, daylight and the divine Danesborough Chorus, which will perform its next concert on Saturday 3 March 2018, 7.30 pm, at St Mary's Church, Woburn.

This concert will feature four contrasting choral gems composed by Rheinberger, Sullivan (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame), Britten and Tippett, taking the audience on a musical journey from the Victorian era to mid 20th century .

There's 'two for the price of one', when the Danesborough divides into two unaccompanied choirs to perform Rheinberger's flowing, melodic Mass  in E flat, first published in 1878. Sullivan's dignified  Te Deum Laudamus is a thanksgiving anthem written in 1900 to mark the coming end of the Boer War, though it wasn't performed until 1902. Britten's Rejoice in the Lamb, one of his most popular choral compositions, has almost local connections, having been commissioned in 1943 for the 50th anniversary of St Matthew's Church in Northampton. Tippett's inspired oratorio A Child of our Time, composed during the Second World War, uses five American spirituals and is reminiscent of Bach's use of chorales in his Passions.
