CONCERTS IN 2019 After our "The Lark Ascending" concert on 6 July our Concert Programme continues on 12 October
October 12 Bruch Violin Concerto
Is there a more expressive violin concerto in the repertoire? As played by the leader of the Cathedral Orchestra, Leo Byrne, this will be a very special performance. It shares the concert with two of Schuman’s mature masterpieces: his interpretation of Byron’s Manfred and the evocative Rhenish Symphony. This is a feast for all lovers of romantic music. Our next concert, on November 9, includes romantic choral music by Fauré, Franck, Stanford and Parry.
November 9 Choral Classics
This is a must for lovers of choral music. Ranging over three centuries, many of the great pieces by Bach and Handel, Fauré and Franck Parry and Stanford are here, interspersed with organ works. This is a feast of well-loved classics: Hallelujah Chorus; Widor’s Toccata and many more.
December 7 Christmas Concert
Joining the Cantata Choir and Orchestra are two excellent local children’s choirs from Carleton House School, Liverpool and English Martyrs School, Litherland. There will be many seasonal favourites: O Come, All Ye Faithful, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Sleigh Ride as well as some surprises and the opportunity to sing along in the famous and traditional carols.
