Brent Singers: A Holocaust Cantata

Saturday 26th January 2019, 19:30 | £10.00

On the eve of Holcaust Memorial Day, Brent Singers join with the Choristers of Buckfast Abbey for an emotive performance of Philip Awkright's Holocaust Cantata, Shoah. Saturday 26th January 2019, 19:30

Dartington Community Choir: Music for Voices, Organ and Cello

Saturday 2nd March 2019, 19:30 | £10.00

Matthew Coleridge, who is conducting this concert, wrote his Requiem in 2015. This melodic, deeply moving, quietly powerful and intensely beautiful work weaves vocal harmonies and soaring cello lines into rich tapestries of sound. Vaughan Williams' Five Mystical Songs sets four Easter poems by George Herbert for baritone solo and choir, the best known being 'Let all the World in every corner sing'.
