Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’, his most famous choral piece, has a wonderfully sunny nature, and melodies which give it immediate and universal appeal. A jubilant hymn of praise, with interludes of quieter contemplation, it is perhaps one of choral music’s most uplifting works.

In ‘Beatus Vir’ (Blessed is the Man), Vivaldi’s setting of Psalm 111, the dramatic and expressive music again matches the varying moods of the text, from joy to meditation.

Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’, one of his most celebrated sacred works, uses hauntingly beautiful melodies to express the sorrows of Mary at the foot of the cross.

Finally, Torelli’s sparkling little 'Sinfonia in D’ for Trumpet & Strings completes an evening of delightful Baroque music.

Bexhill Choral is joined by well-known local soloists Caroline Charnock and Rebecca Hughes, trumpeter Andy Gill, and the Sussex Concert Orchestra, and it promises to be a wonderful evening.
