Sacred and Profane
Join Voix de Vivre and the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra this December 1st at St Saviour's Church for a concert of choral and orchestral fireworks.
Baroque brilliance is provided by Handel's exuberant early choral masterpiece, Dixit Dominus, a dramatic setting of Psalm 110. The Amadeus Chamber Orchestra add contrast and colour with the rich textures of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, scored for strings alone.
We sprinkle a little spice with Britten's setting of medieval lyrics in his virtuosic piece, Sacred and Profane. Purcell's extraordinary setting of words from The Song of Solomon My Beloved Spake, anticipates the coming of spring.
