    Fauré's Requiem and Vivaldi's Gloria | La Nova Singers
    Duncan Honeybourne, La Nova Singers, Michelle Nova
    St Ambrose Church Bournemouth BH4 8BE
    United Kingdom

    Dorset choir La Nova Singers will bring to life two of the most iconic works of the classical choral repertoire when they perform the Fauré Requiem and Vivaldi's Gloria in the beautiful acoustic of St Ambrose Church. The all-female ensemble, whose performances have been noted for their 'dynamic intensity' and 'bright vocal tone', will be singing rarely-heard arrangements of the popular pieces in a concert which forms part of their 10th Anniversary celebrations.

    Gabriel Fauré's Requiem is known for its serenity, and contains the well-known pieces 'Pie Jesu' and 'In Paradisum'. Its lush harmonies offer audiences a vision of heaven, complete with angelic chorus. Acclaimed Weymouth musician Duncan Honeybourne will accompany the choir on organ.

    A more celebratory theme can be found in Vivaldi's Gloria, where the composer's ear for a catchy melody is evident in sprightly pieces such as 'Domine Fili Unigenite', 'Laudemus Te' and the eponymous 'Gloria in excelsis Deo'. The singers will here be accompanied by a string ensemble.

    The musicians perform courtesy of funding awarded to La Nova Singers through Skipton Building Society's Grassroots Giving scheme.

    Requiem in D minor
    Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)
    Gloria in D
    Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)

    Film, Stars and Pirates | North Wiltshire Orchestra
    Alex Arkwright, North Wiltshire Orchestra, Paul Turner, Sara Stagg
    St Andrew's Church Chippenham SN15 3HT
    United Kingdom

    North Wiltshire Orchestra's spring concert explores pieces that have either been written for films, or have been used in films. So many great pieces of music have an association with film and so many great composers have contributed to film music.

    The concert opens with Rossini's Overture to the opera 'William Tell' and for many this piece will bring back memories of 'The Lone Ranger' on the small screen. The film composer John Williams's music is well represented firstly with 'Star Wars Suite' and then the theme from 'Schindler's List'. The solo violin is played by Sara Stagg. The theme from 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' was written by Klaus Badelt for the 2003 box office success and has become a firm favourite. Central to the programme, used in many films and perhaps one of the most loved of all classical pieces is the second Piano Concerto by Sergey Rachmaninov. Composed in 1900/1901 the concerto was first used in 1945 for the film 'A Brief Encounter' and again in 1946 'I've Always Loved You'. More recently it was featured in Clint Eastwood's film 'Hereafter' in 2010.

    The soloist in this concert is Paul Turner. Paul previously played with the orchestra in 2013 in a hugely successful concert that included Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.

    Overture to 'William Tell'
    Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868)
