Concert: Summer celebration (12 June 2010)
With the Backbeat Percussion Quartet, soloist Elizabeth Cragg (Soprano), and involving local school children.
A family concert to celebrate the choir’s 50 years of singing.
Join us for a performance of Fanshawe’s African Sanctus:
Bringing the vibrant sounds of Africa to the Cathedral, African Sanctus is an unorthodox setting of the Latin Mass harmonised with traditional African music recorded by the composer. The taped music from Egypt, Sudan, Uganda and Kenya is heard in counterpoint with the live chorus, soprano soloist and instrumental ensemble.
