Glorious and good-natured music for a summer evening: acclaimed London chamber choir Voxcetera have invited the brilliant Edinburgh ensemble Rudsambee to join them for a joint concert of choral musical, ranging from Tudor anthems to the present day.
The programme includes Samuel Barber and Morten Lauridsen‘s spinetingling arrangements of Sure On This Shining Night; anthems by Biebl, Byrd, Tallis and Weelkes; settings of Shakespeare songs by Shearing; James MacMillan‘s haunting and unmistakeably celtic The Galant Weaver; and folk songs by Reger.
Two great choirs, much great music, one lovely evening.
Rudsambee Company of Singers, conductor Ciara Coleman
