Circles Unending: Music by composers from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales

Spring Concert: Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 4:00pm

Cantilena women's chorale presents a varied selection of choral music for treble voices from the British Isles, drawing on traditions of the Anglican church, Shakespeare's Sonnets, Irish poetry, and the English landscape, from the 16th century to the present.

Program highlights include Benjamin Britten's beloved Missa Brevis in D, first performed with organ in London's Westminster Cathedral; Gustav Holst's sublime Ave Maria, written for double chorus; the spare yet moving Sonnet by James MacMillan; Rhona Clarke's haunting setting of Nuala Ní Dhomnaill's poem Cnámh; rollicking, saucy, and sober songs of David Willcocks; and Stone Circles, a humbling song asking for inclusivity with words and music by Anne Lister.

Concert Location:
