  1. Gloria in D RV 589 - Antonio Vivaldi
  2. Sunrise Mass - Ola Gjeilo

There is much joyful baroque music out there, but none surpasses Vivaldi’s popular Gloria for sheer exuberant happiness. And yet it’s full of variety, from the slow and staggeringly tender 'Et in terra pax' to the delightfully effervescent 'Domine, Fili unigenite'; the choir accompanied by a sprightly arrangement of strings, oboe and trumpet.

The New York-based Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo loves film music and in his thrilling, transcendental Sunrise Mass he pays tribute to its high emotions, adrenalin, drama and sense of wonder. Scored for choir and strings and using traditional Latin texts, the 30 minute Sunrise Mass is strong on melody and rich in harmony, opening with gorgeous shimmering chords that emerge magically out of silence. It’s unmistakably modern, but it’s also in touch with early sacred music of many centuries ago.

A licensed bar will be open before the performance and during the interval. The concert should finish by around 9pm, and we recommend The Flask pub opposite the church if you'd like to extend your evening in the company of some of the performers.

If you have access requirements, please use the email link above - the ground floor of the church is wheelchair accessible, and while we do not offer discounts, essential companions may attend for free.
