Paul Brough – an outstanding director – will work with participants on four short choral jewels, that may not be well known to some, but are immensely singable and will be a great addition to everyone’s repertoire.
Ranging from 16th to 19th century the pieces will offer a varied and interesting day. Robert Parsons’ “Ave Maria” is always the final piece sung at the final service of the Edington Music Festival. We will also tackle two pieces by Henry Purcell: “Thou knowest Lord” from the Funeral Sentences for Queen Mary and “I was glad”. We sang Parry’s version last year, so this will be a complete contrast. And finally Anton Bruckner’s “Ave Maria” which we are promised is a ‘passionate, thickly-scored, great sing’.
