HIAWATHA’S WEDDING FEAST Coleridge-Taylor

DONA NOBIS PACEM  Vaughan Williams

The National Festival Orchestra

Conductors & Organists: Simon Lindley & David Houlder  

Soprano - Kristina James

Tenor - Ben Thapa

Bass - Quentin Brown

International Tenor Ben Thapa brings a Garland of English Song to Doncaster Choral Society’s Spring Concert. As preludial music to the two major works of the evening – Vaughan Williams’s Don nobis pacem of 1936 and Samuel Coleridge Taylor’s Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast of 1898.

Ben is a regular and esteemed guest at Doncaster concerts and we are delighted that he has agreed to present and sing a glorious galaxy of exquisite English music from the 17th century onwards.

Henry Purcell, Michael Head and Peter Warlock will be heard at the opening of the concert, unfolding from Purcell’s evocative “Music for a While”.

At the head of part two comes a brilliant song by the hugely gifted Denis Browne, killed in the Gallipoli Campaign along with his friend poet Rupert Brooke, along with other music by Elgar and Frank Bridge, concluding with the fiendlishly difficult Love went a-riding.....

The Society’s conductor, Dr Simon Lindley, will accompany Ben on the piano.

RUTTER concert 'Requiem' and 'Feel the Spirit'

Feel the Spirit is a lovely collection of seven American Spirituals  arranged for choir by John Rutter

The 'Requiem' combines many of the traditional stanzas of the latin 'Mass for the Dead' with glorious English texts from the 'Book of Common Prayer' in music that encourages as well as uplifts. 'Feel the Spirit', another firm favourite with choirs and audiences, brings special magic, new life even, to such well-loved titles as 'Steal Away' and 'Deep River'.
