In their September concert The Corinthian Singers’ Music Director Alistair Knight has put together a collection of songs with a common theme - as well as being great music - they all tell stories.
 
The program of 
Stories and Secrets includes madrigals: Thomas Weelkes’ song of unrequited love, Now every tree, and a jolly romp of a song by John Farmer, Fair Phyllis I saw.
 
There will be three works by Orlando Gibbons including the anthem The Secret Sins.
 
The concert also contains works The Crown of Roses by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky which tells the story of a young Jesus in a garden of roses. Herbert Sumsion’s dramatic setting of Psalm 107, They that go down to the sea in ships, and Gustav Holst’s rousing I love my love, based on a Cornish folksong it tells a tale of a sailor who rescues his love from Bedlam.
 
To bookend the concert the choir will perform two modern works arranged in the style of four part  madrigals: Lennon and McCartney’s Can’t buy me love and Smash Mouth’s rock anthem All Star
 
Put down the books for a while and enjoy the stories as told by the Corinthian Singers in 
Stories and Secrets.
