The Way of the Cross
Newbury Chamber Choir’s next concert is on Saturday, 1 April at 7.30pm at St John’s Church, Newbury RG14 7PY
Franz Liszt: Via Crucis
Anton Bruckner: Sacred Motets
Liszt's Via Crucis (1878) for choir, organ and baritone, depicts the final hours of Christ's life, from his condemnation by Pontius Pilate to his crucifixion.
The choir also presents a collection of Bruckner's famous sacred motets, which set a variety of Latin biblical texts, including Christus factus est, Virga Jesse, and Locus Iste.
Both Liszt's Via Crucis and Bruckner's Sacred Motets are considered to be deeply religious and spiritual works, reflective of the composers' deep faith and devotion.
Come and hear these masterpieces of sacred choral music in the beautiful spiritual atmosphere of St John’s Church.
Concert is from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Tickets £15, Under 18’s free, online at newburychamberchoir.org or on the door.
