Exultate Singers: Into the World of Light

Into the World of Light

Sunday 12 November at 7.30pm, St George’s Bristol

David conducts Exultate Singers in a concert of ethereal and powerful music featuring two world premieres by leading British composers.

Sicut Cervus is a brand new anthem commissioned by Exultate Singers from the celebrated composer Sir James MacMillan. Wanderlust, a work commissioned from Toby Young, explores feelings of loss and homelessness across different cultures. Through first-hand stories, original poetry, and haunting music the work explores the pain of those away from home, whether fighting on the front line or seeking refuge, as well as the strength and resilience shown by humanity all over the world. British choral gems by Tavener, Harris, Parry, Elgar and Howells complete the programme.

Tickets £12 to £22 from St George’s box office online and by phone on 0845 40 24 001
