A word from our Musical Director...
The Gala Concert is central to our year of celebration. We’ve chosen to perform two enduring favourites of the choral repertoire, which are both wonderful to perform and a special treat for any audience.
Vivaldi’s Gloria is a timeless classic and features in the programme as a chance to welcome many former members back to the choir to perform, including former conductors of Southern Voices.
JS Bach’s Magnificat (BWV243) is, put simply, one of the greatest compositions ever written. Composed in 1723, it was his first major liturgical composition on a Latin text, having just taken up the exalted position of Thomaskantor in Leipzig. It is scored for five vocal parts (SSATB) and Baroque orchestra that includes trumpets and timpani; this has become one of the composer’s most popular vocal works.
We are thrilled to welcome Endelienta Baroque to perform alongside Southern Voices for this concert.
