This year The Purcell Singers will be performing ‘Music We’d Like To Hear’ on Sunday 6th March, 4pm, at the absolutely glorious St Paul’s Church in London’s vibrant Covent Garden.
50% on the ticket income will go to ‘Holding On Letting Go’ a Kent based charity providing support to bereaved children and their families.
Tickets are very reasonably priced at £18 for adults and £5 for children. For more information or tickets please email Helen.Cook@HOLG.org.uk or phone 03445 611511
The pieces are largely connected by a theme of light. It is all a cappella, but a lovely mix of early music and contemporary composers, so there will be a lot of contrast across the concert:
Victoria: Tenebrae Responsories (excerpts)
Harris: Hail gladdening light
Harris: Holy is the true light
Lauridsen: O nata lux
Paulus: The day is done
MacMillan: O Radiant Dawn
Holst: Nunc dimittis
Tallis: O nata lux
Tallis: Te lucis ante terminum I and II
