Exultate Singers: A Sense of the Divine


Saturday 14th February at 7.30pm, St George’s Bristol

David conducts a programme of beautiful choral music on the theme of love. Sensuous motets by Renaissance masters Victoria and Palestrina setting words from the Song of Songs are contrasted with ravishing choral pieces by Finzi, Rütti, Whitacre and Daniel-Lesur. The choir will also give the world premiere of a new work by Bristol-based composer David Bednall, commissioned especially for this concert. Three Songs of Love sets words by John Clare, John McCrae and W.B. Yeats including his famous poem ‘The Cloths of Heaven’. Cellist Richard May and pianist Olena Shvetsova perform music by Chopin and Piazzolla. Tickets £12 to £24 from St George’s box office online or on 0845 40 24 001
