Bernstein Chichester Psalms – Cantamus Chamber Choir

A concert where hope springs eternal with music for choir, organ, harp and percussion by English and American composers. Leonard Bernstein’s magnificent Chichester Psalms, written for the choirs of Chichester, Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals is tuneful, tonal and contemporary, featuring dancing rhythms and glorious melodies with “a hint of West Side Story about the music”. Fellow American Randall Thompson’s uplifting, dramatic and harmonically lush Alleluia will leave the listener in a state of exultation. The Miracle of the Spring for choir and percussion by Bob Chilcott explores the life giving properties of water with his typical zest and accessibility hard to resist and A Fancy of Folksongs, written for harp and choir sets four well known folk songs, each given a contemporary, irresistibly playful feel by Cecilia McDowall.

Organist Steven Hollas is joined by harpist Ruth Kenyon and Countertenor soloist Stephen Harvey, lay clerk at Wells Cathedral.

Tea and cake will be available.
