Ely Choral Society - In Excelsis Deo

21 October 2023, 19:30


Gloriously spiritual works begin and end this concert.

Vivaldi’s Gloria ranks among the most popular choral pieces, full of both vivacious and intimate baroque sonorities. The Mass in D by Dvořák is more lyrical and prayerful than dramatic, reflecting the composer’s love of nature and evoking the countryside surrounding the chapel for which the work was written.

As well as an organ solo, the programme will include Andrew Parnell’s Etheldreda from his ‘Fenland Images’ suite, to mark the 1350th anniversary of the eponymous saint’s foundation of Ely’s monastery.

Local soloists join Ely’s largest choir to make this a delightful autumn concert.
