Choral masterpiece

Join the Tudor Consort vocal chamber ensemble for a commemoration of Holy Week. This year’s programme is based on Sir James MacMillan’s emotionally moving ‘Cantos Sagrados’, which are three poems based on political repression, violence, and redemption in Latin America. These ideas were explored in Hubert Parry’s ‘Lord, Let Me Know Mine End’, written at the end of Parry’s life against the brutal backdrop of the First World War. This piece is widely recognised as a ‘choral masterpiece’, grappling with the brief nature of life and searching for meaning and hope in conflict.

Tomorrow from 4:00pm to 5:30pm at Featherston Anzac Hall, 62 Bell St, Featherston.
