Choir Concert: Cadogan Hall

Wednesday 21 March 2018, 7.30pm

The events of Lent and Holy Week have inspired composers over the centuries to write some of their most profound music.

Here, two great settings of the poem Stabat Mater, which describes Jesus’ mother standing at the foot of the Cross on the first Good Friday, are coupled with Tallis’ dramatic interpretation of sombre words from the Lamentations of Jeremiah.

Two motets, with apposite texts by Brahms and Poulenc’s sequence of four penitential motets complete the programme.

Part of Choral at Cadogan 2017-18.

Programme to include:

Palestrina Stabat Mater
Tallis Lamentations of Jeremiah I
Poulenc Lenten motets
Lassus Stabat Mater
Tallis Lamentations of Jeremiah II
Brahms Warum ist das Licht gegeben?
