Motets from Tempus per Annum in London this month


Two motets from my collection Tempus per annum will be performed this month. On Thursday 13 December London Concord Singers, conductor Malcolm Cottle, will be giving the premiere of the Advent motet Propre es tu and on Friday 7 December, La Chapelle du Roi, conductor Alistair Dixon, will be performing Puer natus est nobis which they premiered in 2009.
The concert by London Concord Singers is at Grosvenor Chapel, South Audley Street, Mayfair at 7.30pm on 13/12/2012. The programme is entitled The Great O Antiphons and they are performing settings of the Advent Antiphons by Keith Roberts, Arvo Part, Pavel Lukaszewski, Cecilia McDowall, Bob Chilcott and Robert Ramsey, plus a 12 part Magnificat by Andrea Gabrieli and motets by Robert Hugill and others. Further details from their website.

Alistair Dixon and La Chapelle du Roi are performing their programme Old Lamps for New at St Johns Smith Square tomorrow (7/12/2012) at 7.30pm. They are presenting old and new settings of familiar Advent and Christmas texts, with music by Roxanna Panufnik, Daniel Burges, Nicholas O'Neill, David Braid, Antony Pitts, Robert Hugill and Anthony Mudge alongside Guerroro, Sheppard, Tallis, Victoria and Palestrina.

My collection Tempus per annum consists of settings of the Latin Introits for the Sundays and major feasts in the church's year. When complete it will run to 72 motets in four volumes, the first three volumes are currently available. More information (and a recording of four of the motets) from the Spherical Editions website.
