Bexhill Choral Society is proud and excited to premiere a new piece by our Director of Music, well-known musician, conductor and composer Kenneth Roberts. Iseult is an oratorio-style piece for soprano solo and chorus, exploring the story of Tristan and Iseult from Iseult’s point of view, and described by the composer as “accessible, with ‘tunes’ and drama”.
The concert includes another Celtic-inspired piece, with music by Sir Arthur Sullivan from a dramatisation of the ‘King Arthur’ story, while Holst’s moving and poignantly beautiful setting of Psalm 86 and two movements from Roberts’ Flute Concerto round out an evening of lovely and unusual music.
Bexhill Choral is joined by soprano Kristy Swift, flautist Susan Gregg, and the Sussex Concert Orchestra, and it promises to be a wonderful evening.
