Of his famous Requiem, Maurice Duruflé wrote that it was about ‘the flight of the soul to Paradise’. To hear this magical masterwork, you need go no further than SE21, where it is the centrepiece of the Concordia autumn concert. Although based on the ancient tradition of Gregorian chant, this is far from an ethereal meditation, but a sensuous, muscular 20th century interpretation of mankind’s eternal struggle to find a meaning in our brief time on earth. A truly miraculous piece of music. Supporting it will be a varied programme of other Gregorian-inspired works by Monteverdi and Thomas Tallis as well as a dazzling new 21st century piece by David Truslove. So we hope you’ll join us, both body and soul, for another memorable evening with one of London most prestigious amateur choirs.
The performance is at 7:30 pm on Saturday 21st November 2015 at All Saints’ Church, Lovelace Rd, SE21 8JY.
Tickets for the Concordia Chamber Choir’s 2015 Autumn Concert cost £12 at the door, or £11 in advance from www.concordiachamberchoir.co.uk. Concessions (students and those on means tested benefits) half price.
