Great Choral Classics

Our next concert will be a miscellany of sacred and secular music by Brahms, Bruckner, Fauré, Handel, Haydn, Parry, Bairstow, Rutter and Stainer. Ely Choral Society often presents concerts of only one or two works. However, in addition to the many settings of Masses, Requiems and Oratorios, there is a vast supply of smaller-scale choral works which pack the same punch!

This programme contains a rich miscellany of classic sacred works, from the 18th to the 20th centuries. We are marking the anniversaries of the births of Anton Bruckner (200) and Sir Edward Bairstow (150), and of the death of Charles Villiers Stanford (100).

The grandeur of Sir Hubert Parry’s Blest Pair of Sirens stands next to Fauré’s prayerful Cantique de Jean Racine; John Rutter’s All things bright and beautiful is juxtaposed with Handel’s Coronation Anthem Zadok the Priest.

Come and join us to experience this rich array of choral works in the stunning surroundings of St Mary’s Church. With Ely Choral Society, Ely Youth Choir and Glen Dempsey accompanist.

 Conducted by Andrew Parnell

The concert will take place in St Mary’s Church, Ely on Saturday 13th July 2024 at 7.00 pm.

Tickets £20 (with summer drinks) and £5 for U18s from choir members, or at the door. Tickets are available from:
