After a hiatus, due to Covid 19 restrictions, the acclaimed Corinthian Singers make a welcome return to the stage to perform Magnificat, a concert of glorious choral music at 3pm, Sunday 13 September, 2020, St John’s Church, 379 Halifax Street, Adelaide. Tickets $30 and $25 online at trybooking.com. Please note there will be no cash sales at the door.
What better way for the Corinthian Singers to return, than a choral concert featuring three magnificent Magnificats, with Music Director Alistair Knight leading from the harpsichord and the versatile Aurora Strings enhancing the occasion.
In Magnificat the Corinthian Singers present three very different settings of the Magnificat from St Luke’s Gospel by three masters of polyphonic writing. The works are by Henry Purcell, Francesco Durante and Antonio Vivaldi.
Purcell’s G minor Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis is a delight whilst the Durante work in B flat, previously attributed to his pupil Giovanni Pergolesi, is gloriously joyful and Vivaldi’s setting of the Magnificat in G Minor is a grand and dramatic finale.
The concert will also feature works by Stanford, Wesley, Hassler and Rawsthorne.
