Ely Consort: The Gift of Life
Date(s) - 18/03/2023
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Matthew Rudd – Conductor
John Rutter – The Gift of Life
Sir Hubert Parry – My soul, there is a country
Sir James MacMillan – Who shall separate us
(as sung at the funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II)
Brahms – Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras
The highlight of the concert will be a performance of John Rutter’s The Gift of Life, a six-movement choral celebration of the living earth, of creation, and of life itself. With an accompaniment of organ, piano, harp and percussion, the music offers a kaleidoscope of moods from contemplative and prayerful to majestic and inspirational. This is one of John Rutter’s most recent substantial works, and it has been very well received.
We will also sing two of the anthems which were performed at the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, James MacMillan’s Who shall separate us? which was specially written for the service, and Sir Hubert Parry’s much-loved My soul, there is a country. The concert will also include the powerful Denn alles Fleisch, es ist wie Gras from Brahms’s German Requiem.
