Chorale invites you to Northern Lights featuring the music of Ola Gjeilo.
The main work is Gjeilo’s
Sunrise Mass, a Symphonic Mass for Chorus
and string orchestra. The music is cinematic and has
been described as
“lyrical, lush, evocative, and stirring”. Using the Latin mass text, he gives English
titles for the component movements: The Spheres, Sunrise, The
City, Identity and The Ground.
The composer notes: “I wanted
the musical development of the Mass to evolve from transparent and
spacey, through increasing emotion and movement, to something solid and grounded — as a
for human development from child to adult, for a spiritual journey, or
for the creative process itself”.
It is certainly a piece not to be
missed, and is loved by audiences.
companion pieces, we will also be performing his shorter work Northern
Lights and a setting of the
Pater Noster by Latvian composer Peteris
The concert is completed with Grieg's Holberg Suite; a piece of
strength, gentility, playfulness, and meditation.
