Stunning music for All Saints'
PUBLISHED: 17:30 10 November 2010
HAYDN'S music will be flavour of the month at Weston's All Saints' Church where two of the 18th century Austrian composer's choral masses are to be performed during November in the stunning acoustic of the building.
The first on November 27, will be a concert performance of his St Nicholas’ Mass by Weston Choral Society under the direction of Ray Willis, with soloists Mary Morgan (soprano), Margaret Hopes (mezzo-soprano), Roland Kitchen (tenor), Stephen Foulkes (bass) and Richard Lennox (piano).
The evening will also see renditions of Under the Wide Sky - a song cycle of poems by Robert Louis Stevenson set to music by the modern composer Guy Turner, three of the delightful Quantock Carols arranged by Wilfred Mack and the Quartet Sleep, My Saviour, Sleep set to music by Walter Hedgcock.
Tickets, priced £8.50 are available on the door. Concert-goers are reminded that a previously advertised performance date of November 20 was wrong.
The following day a specially-augmented church choir, under the direction of Christopher Manners, will sing Haydn’s Little Organ Mass as part of the church’s eucharist service at 10am. Entry will be free.
