    The Sixteen: Choral Pilgrimage
    Harry Christophers, The Sixteen
    The Cathedral Church of St Peter and St Paul Sheffield S1 1HA
    United Kingdom

    Poulenc’s choral music was all written after 1936, when the tragic death of a close friend led to a religious epiphany. Its seriousness and intensity contrast with his more frivolous secular style, but these works make perfect companion pieces for the pure counterpoint of the great Renaissance master, Palestrina.

    Salve Regina
    Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)
    Surge, propera amica mea (5vv) from Canticum Canticorum Salomonis (Song of Songs)
    Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
    Parce mihi, Domine
    Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
    Four motets for the season of Lent
    Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)
    Peccantem me quotidie
    Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594)
    Un soir de neige
    Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)
    Agnus Dei from Mass in G
    Francis Poulenc (1899-1963)
    Kyrie from Missa L'homme armé

    Porgy and Bess and world premiere of Laura Bowler's Navigating the dog watch
    Abigail Kelly, Crouch End Festival Chorus, David Temple, Francesca Chiejina, Inner Voices, London Orchestra da Camera, Rodney Earl Clarke, Ronald Samm
    Barbican Hall London EC2Y 8DS
    United Kingdom

    Crouch End Festival Chorus presents the vibrant and dramatic Porgy and Bess alongside the world premiere of Navigating the dog watch by young theatrically-minded composer Laura Bowler. Based on a recent visit to some remote Atlantic islands, Bowler’s wordless piece transforms their environment into an aural landscape using the infinite possibilities of the human voice, with a backdrop of film projections.

    This performance marks a new collaboration with ‘Inner Voices’, one of London’s emerging and talented youth choirs. Boldly juxtaposing Bowler’s new work with Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, this performance brings together the passion, energy and quality that Crouch End Festival Chorus is known for.

    Concert Suite from 'Porgy and Bess', arranged by Andrew Litton
    George Gershwin (1898-1937)
    Navigating the dog watch
    Laura Bowler ()

It's a wonderfully attractive programme, with two Brandenburgs, one of Mozart's best-loved works for wind, and Richard Strauss's deeply moving Metamorphosen in the version for seven instruments - a great way to celebrate 70 years of the Richmondshire Concerts.

    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
    Metamorphosen
    Richard Strauss (1864-1949)
