Tudor Consort: Bach, Brahms, Tallis: 30 October 04

The Tudor Consort: Bach, Brahms, Tallis: 30 October 2004

The Tudor Consort's next 2004 season performance is on Saturday 30 October.

The choir is delighted to present one of Bach's six stunning Motets, plus romantic repertoire of Johannes Brahms, along with settings of the Lamentations by Tallis, Ferrabosco and Edward Bairstow:

J S Bach
J S Bach: "Komm, Jesu, Komm" (BWV229)
Funeral Motet for Double Choir

Johannes Brahms: "Drei Motetten" (Op. 110)
Three Penetential Motets for Double Choir

Alfonso Ferrabosco: "De Lamentatione Jeremiae Prophetae a Quintus Vocem"
Lamentations of Jeremiah for Five Voices
with additional settings by Thomas Tallis and Edward Bairstow

7.30pm, Saturday 30 October
Wellington Cathedral of St Paul, Molesworth Street
$25 / $15 / Door sales from 7pm

for complete programme details.

Bach's gorgeous funeral motet Komm, Jesu, Komm is one of the most affecting works of the Lutheran repertoire and contains Bach's most beautiful writing for choir. Brahms' Drei Motetten is a set of three rich, romantic penetential motets for duoble choir; that composer's final, and most masterful, contribution to sacred vocal music. The heartfelt texts of Jeremiah's Lamentations fascinated the composers of the Renaissance and here we present five of the most beautiful settings, including masterful compositions by Thomas Tallis and Edward Bairstow, the affecting simplicty of plainsong, and the unparalled setting for Five Voices by Italian composer Alfonso Ferrabosco the Elder.

All sung by "Wellington's superb chamber choir" (The Dominion Post) in a candle-lit Wellington Cathedral. A stunning programme in a stunning venue; don't miss it.

With very best regards,

Alastair Carey Cantor The Tudor Consort
