Chipperfield Choral Society and children from St Paul’s School will be performing Benedicite by Andrew Carter at the upcoming concert in St Paul’s Church. This lyrical piece, which was inspired by the Benedicite carvings in York Minster, was commissioned by the British Federation of Young Choirs and contains three movements for children’s choir which will be sung by the young people from the school.
The concert will also feature Eternal Light, a modern Requiem by Howard Goodall, perhaps best known for the theme music for The Vicar of Dibley, but also a renowned composer of contemporary choral music. Eternal Light reflects on the traditional words of the Latin Mass and juxtaposes them with poems in English and thus, indeed, becomes a modern Requiem.
The concert is on June 18th at St Paul’s Church, Chipperfield and tickets can be obtained from the Box Office on 01923 400520 or from choir members.
