Lighten our Darkness

Saturday, November 12th, 2016 at 7:30pm

Queens’ College Chapel, Cambridge

Light and Darkness

 

Fairhaven Singers, with guest appearance by Perse Prep Senior Choir

Conducted by Ralph Woodward

 

Lighten our Darkness promises to be one of our most atmospheric and memorable concerts yet, tracing a vivid trajectory from the gloom of Gesualdo’s Tenebrae factae sunt and the rich melancholy of Brahms’ Warum ist das Licht gegeben to the radiance of Ligeti’s iconic Lux aeterna and John Rutter’s magical Hymn to the Creator of Light. The concert also features music written for us by two of Europe’s leading choral composers: Carl Rütti’s Lighten our Darkness and Cecilia McDowall’s God is light, which receives its premiere and also showcases the superb voices of the Perse Prep School Choir. Come and hear Queens’ College Chapel flooded with amazing sounds, as we transport you from darkness to light.
