My turn behind the footlights

For their Easter concert my choir, London Concord Singers, conductor Malcolm Cottle, will be performing Gabriel Jackson's Requiem. Written in 2009 for the Vasari Singers, the work combines settings of the traditional texts from the Latin mass with texts from other spiritual traditions including words by Kevin Gilbert, Hojo Ujimasa, Walt Whitman, Rabindranth Tagore and Chief Aupumut. The result combines great beauty with some passages of striking originality.

London Concord Singers will be performing the work with the Choral Dances from Benjamin Britten's opera Gloriana which was premiered 60 years ago in 1953, plus Giuseppe Verdi's setting of the Pater Noster and seasonal motets by Harant, Philips, Guerrero and Mendelssohn.

I'll be singing in the concert, so hope to see you there.
