Choristry is excited to welcome guest conductor Mr Simon Bruckard for this special concert event. Most well known for his operas, amongst Verdi’s lesser well known and last compositions are the suite of sacred motets, Four Sacred Pieces (Quattro Pezzi Sacri) first performed together on 7th April 1898.
In concert, Choristry will be performing the four works: Ave Maria, for mixed chorus; Stabat Mater, for mixed chorus and welcoming the Choristry Players on piano and string quartet; Laudi alla Vergine Maria, for female chorus; and Te Deum, for double chorus and the Choristry Players.
Finally Choristry will present Verdi’s Pater Noster, composed in 1880. This a capella motet is based on a religious text, an early version of the Lord’s Prayer, by 14th century Italian poet, Antonio Beccari.
