Summer Concert at Platt

14/07/2014 22:11

Our last concert before the summer break was only a stone's throw from where we rehearse. Holy Trinity Platt Church just inside Platt Fields in Rusholme was the venue for what the audience that I talked to after the concert described as 'wonderful', 'amazing', 'magical'. Here's the programme so you can get an idea of the breadth of music we sing:

Hrusovsky       Rytmus

Murphy            Pilgrim Song

Tavener            Hymn to the Dormition of the Mother of God (No 2)


Laurisden         Contre Qui Rose

Laurisden         Dirait-on


Chilcott            Happy the Man

Chilcott            Simple Pictures of Tomorrow    (Commissioned by The Chorale in 2004.)


Stanford          Coelos Ascendit     (This group was sung with us split into two choirs, front and back of the church - antiphony.)

Harris              Bring Us O Lord God

Tavener            Hymn to the Mother of God (NO 1)


Whitacre         Seal Lullaby

Gavelin/Nilson  Hold  Me Fast

Rutter              I My Best Beloved’s Am     (Is this John Rutter's best piece of music?)


Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat

Miss Otis Regrets
