Event Description


On Saturday 22nd June at 7.30pm the chamber choir Ely Consort, conducted by Matthew Rudd, will be performing a programme of choral music in Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford. Described as ‘undoubtedly one of the finest choral groups in the area’, the choir, which usually performs in Ely Cathedral and other venues around Ely and Cambridgeshire, is excited to be venturing further afield and is looking forward to performing in Long Melford for the first time. Ely Consort is known for its innovative programming of both classic and contemporary choral music, and will be performing a typically varied programme, including unaccompanied music by Bach and Brahms, beautiful compositions by Elaine Hagenberg and Morten Lauridsen, and an outstandingly entertaining modern piece by Ola Gjeilo, ‘Unicornis captivatur’, which uses an incredible mixture of medieval sounds and dance-like music to tell the story of the ‘captured unicorn’, an extraordinary text written in a Swiss monastery over six hundred years ago! In movements from Jonathan Dove’s incredible modern masterpiece ‘The passing of the year’, the choir will be accompanied by pianist Anne Reece, who will also perform some solos to complement the programme.
Tickets are £15 / u18s free, unreserved, and available online: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/elyconsort, within Long Melford from the church shop, Cafe Hygge, Ivy & Bond as well as on-the-door.
 
Do come along and hear this programme of wonderful music, sung in a stunning venue by a great choir!
