The concert on June 25th combines the forces of Hampstead Chamber choir with organ, brass, and percussion, for an evening of stirring music from the 16th and 20th centuries.
Gabrieli’s exquisite polychoral motets were written for St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, and will be performed in the beautiful setting of Hampstead Parish Church with its stirring acoustic and its balconies which allow for antiphonal placement of the musicians. Hampstead Brass, formed from outstanding London-based musicians for this occasion, will play alongside the choir and will also perform some instrumental pieces of the same period.
John Rutter’s stirring and etherial Gloria of 1974 is one of his most acclaimed choral works, and it never fails to excite audiences with its brilliant combination of choir, organ, tympani, side drums, pitched percussion and brass ensemble. HCC welcomes back Douglas Tang on the organ.
This concert is made possible by a grant from Hampstead Church Music Trust.
