Saturday February 17th 2000, at 7:30pm St Mary's Church, Warwick St Mary's Scholars chamber choir Director: Christoper Monks with musicians and soloists from the CBSO and Westminster Cathedral Leonard Bernstein - Chichester Psalms Benjamin Britten - Rejoice in the Lamb Arvo Pärt - Magnificat John Tavener - Song for Athene William Walton - The Twelve Popular and distinguished local chamber choir St Mary's Scholars are to be joined by an "all star" cast to perform in a Choral Spectacular at St Mary's Warwick on Saturday 17th February at 7.30pm, with musicians and soloists from the CBSO and from Westminster Cathedral. The Chichester Psalms, a commission from the Southern Cathedrals festival in 1965, takes much of its inspiration from Bernstein's most famous work, West Side Story. Set for harp, percussion, organ, soloists and choir, it combines skilfully and beautifully constructed melodies, with catchy rhythms and exquisite harmonies. Tavener's Song for Athene was most notably heard at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1997. Britten's striking anthem Rejoice in the Lamb sets parts of an extraordinary epic poem by Christopher Smart to music in Britten's distinctive style, while William Walton's The Twelve sets W. H. Auden's poem of the same name: "Twelve as the winds and the months are those who taught us these things: envisaging each in an oval glory, let us praise them all with a merry noise". The haunting sounds of Pärt's Magnificat exploit the resonant accoustics of St Mary's Church magnificently.
