Bath Camerata – Mater ora filium

June 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

A programme specially crafted for the occasion by Bath Camerata’s
guest conductor, the acclaimed English choral music specialist and
former student of Herbert Howells, Paul Spicer.

The centre piece for this concert is Bax’s Mater ora filium, a piece
bursting with early 20th century musical imagination. It is coupled
with Byrd’s sumptuous Five Part Mass – a late 16th century
masterpiece and the work that inspired Bax to write his Mater ora
filium more than 300 years later. This is a rare opportunity to hear
these two very different works side by side.

The concert also features two modern Elizabethan madrigal recreations
by Howells, Finzi’s beautiful set of part songs to poems by Robert
Bridges, Britten’s regal Gloriana Dances and two extraordinary part
songs by Stanford.
