Beauty of Baroque30/03/2012 7:00 pm Adult $30; Unwaged $20; Student with ID $10 Knox Church
The City of Dunedin Choir, supported by the Southern Sinfonia and conducted by David Burchell, are pleased to present a concert of beautiful music from the Baroque era.
The programme includes the delightful “Magnificat” composed by J.S. Bach originally for the Christmas vespers in 1723. The extraordinary impact of this great choral work derives essentially from Bach’s remarkable ability to balance, yet at the same time to exploit to the full, the spiritual and dramatic elements of the concise text of the “Magnificat”.
Other works on the programme are Handel’s “Utrecht Te Deum”, Charpentier’s “Laetatus Sum” (a setting of Psalm 121) and Handel’s “Organ Concerto Opus 4 No. 2 in B Flat”.
The soloists are soprano Pepe Becker, soprano Grace Park, mezzo-soprano Amanda Cole, countertenor Christopher John Clifford, tenor Stephen Chambers and bass Julien Van Mellaerts.
