70th Anniversary Concert
The Canterbury Singers gave their first concerts in 1953, under the patronage of the composer Edmund Rubbra. They have always maintained links with Canterbury Cathedral, and this anniversary concert will mostly be directed by Jamie Rogers, Assistant Director of Music at the cathedral, albeit with a guest appearance by the choir's previous director Adrian Bawtree, now Director of Music at Rochester Cathedral.
The programme, accompanied by organ and chamber orchestra, features Vivaldi's famous Gloria (albeit in Alfedo Casella's elaboration!), along with Vaughan Williams' Serenade to Music, Schubert's Mass in G major, and the setting of the Te Deum that William Walton composed for the King's mother's coronation, which was performed again at his own recent coronation.
