Reflections & Inspirations

Saturday, 29 June 2024, 19:30 - 22:00
Holy Trinity, Sloane Square, 146 Sloane Street, London SW1X 9BZ

Every now and then, it's good to take stock of some of the amazing choral material that is being and has been written, especially by British composers.   We are very fortuante that this country has such a rich vein of musical composing talent.   This concert is an opportunity to give these new works and others from recent decades a proper airing.

One of the projects run by Neil & Michael's professional group, Sonoro, is called Choral Inspirations.   The aim of this has been to take existing, well-known choral works and to commission contemporary composers to re-imagine the work as a whole or the text or the score in their own style.   The output from this has been nothing short of astonishing and has, to date, added 12 new works to the choral repertoire.   Some of these appear in this concert's programme.

The programme is expected to include:

  • Elgar : The Spirit of the Lord
  • Tarney : The Spirit of the Lord  (re-imagined Elgar)
  • Brahms : Geistliches Lied
  • Higgins : See I am God  (re-imagined Brahms)
  • Smith Moore : We shall walk through the valley
  • Dett : O Holy Lord
  • Dale : Panis Angelicus  (re-imagined from Franck's original)
  • Treseder : Jesu, joy of our desiring   (re-imagined from Bach's original)
  • Todd : Locus Iste
  • Gjeilo : Northern Lights
  • Lauridsen : Sure on this shining night
  • Harris : Holy is the true light
  • Wood : Hail, gladdening light

This will be Neil Ferris' last concert with Wimbledon Choral as its Music Director.
