South Bank Singers are presenting a programme of contemporary choral music at 7.30pm Saturday 17th March.
This exciting music varies from Eric Whitacre’s “i thank You God for most this amazing day” – a gorgeous and almost effortless setting, through to Jonathan Dove’s The Passing of the Year with settings of poems by William Blake, Emily Dickinson, George Peele, Thomas Nash and Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Jonathan Dove is one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music, and his writing for choral forces is charged with intensity and beauty. The Passing of the Year is dedicated to the memory of his mother and sets seven texts with moving directness and a beguiling sense of the seasons passing.
Entry is free and there will be a collection plate in aid of SASH the local charity aimed at helping the homeless in York.
