Chichester Psalms
All Saints Church, Clifton , Bristol, United Kingdom On Saturday 3 March, City of Bristol Choir will perform a concert to celebrate Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday. Bernstein was known as a conductor, composer and teacher. His compositions range from symphonies to musicals and are famed for their, vitality, jazzy rhythms and plaintive, heartfelt melodies. The Chichester Psalms has all these elements in abundance. In three contrasting movements conveying messages of joy, peace, humility and goodwill, Bernstein fuses the choir and organ¹s vibrance and power with the harp¹s delicate and ethereal sounds, together with the rhythmic drive of drums and percussion.The mystical and engaging combination of these varied colours from choir, organ and harp are also heard in Janácek¹s restful setting of the Lord¹s Prayer and in the rarely heard Hymne for ladies¹ voices, Wie lieblich sind deine Wohnungen by the 19th century composer Josef Rheinberger. The choir also gives the first performance of a new work for men's choir, by the young, Bristol composer Amy Summers. Amy is one of this year's City of Bristol Choir Scholars and the premiere of her carol ‘The Shepherds’ Farewell’ at St George’s Hall was received with aplomb at Christmas time. The final two works of the programme set vivid and passionate words by 17th century poets: Finzi¹s melodious festival anthem Lo, the full, final sacrifice, and the dramatic cantata Crucifixus pro nobis by the Yorkshire-born composer Kenneth Leighton. This exciting programme encompasses 5 languages as well as making use of the rarely heard combination of choir, harp, and All Saints’ famous organ. What better way to commemorate this significant birthday of one of Bristol’s most important churches? The concert will begin at 7 30pm, at All Saints Church, Clifton. It will be conducted by David Ogden, with Richard Johnson on the organ, Kate Pearson on harp and Jeremy Little on percussion. The full programme is below.
