From the first Renaissance will be sung motets by White (the gravely beautiful Christe, qui lux es et dies), Byrd, Weelkes and Tomkins. Their counterpart in lyricism and compositional ingenuity is heard four hundred years later in works by Howells (the rarely-heard Inheritance, with words by Walter De La Mare), Harvey (I love the Lord), Timothy Salter (Miraculum Secundum, a setting of the miracle of the Gadarene swine recounted it St Mark’s gospel) and Nicholas Ansdell-Evans (Ave verum corpus, written for this choir and its conductor).

Image may contain: textAfter a gap of two hundred years English choral music flourished anew during the second half of the 19c in a later Renaissance, and this momentum has remained in force up to our own times. The music in today’s programme reflects, as may be expected, the changes in musical language over the c.150 years, from the richly Romantic sound of Parry, Stanford and Elgar through the more Anglicised harmonies of Delius and Howells (in his in memoriam for J. F. Kennedy, Take him, Earth, for cherishing) to the contemporary sounds of  music by Timothy Salter and Joseph Horovitz, in whose setting of Wilde’s poem Endymion Jocelyn Coates is the soprano soloist.

Concert Diary

St Peter’s Eaton Square, London

and I saw another angel

The journeying of the spirit between bleak despair and serene joy is portrayed in this programme of sacred music to be given by The Ionian Singers and organist Julian Collings, conducted by Timothy Salter. The plea for help in affliction is most tellingly expressed in Purcell’s  Jehovah, quam multi sunt hostes, more restrained yet still intense in his Hear my prayer and Blow’s Salvator mundi. Anguish and despair run through Eliot’s words in Harvey’s The dove descending, and earthly vanity is lamented in Warlock’s setting of Webster’s All the flowers of the spring. Salter’s Scuto circumdabit te echoes the search for reassurance heard in the Purcell, with the image of a shield occurring in the texts of both. From the 19c and early 20c come four rich settings: S.S.Wesley’s Wash me throughly, two rarely-heard anthems of Stanford and Bainton and Ireland’s Greater love hath no man. Three of Mathias’s Rex Gloriae motets complete the programme.

The Ionian Singers and their conductor Timothy Salter will be joined by violist Luba Tunnicliffe and harpist Oliver Wass, members of the Pelléas Ensemble, for a concert on Saturday 25th November in All Saints Church, Rosendale Road.
An exciting mix of music arises from the unusual combination of voices and the two instrumentalists who will perform both as a duo and with the choir. The programme will include English music by Bax, Elgar and Salter (his Nocturne for harp, viola and chorus) and Russian works for the duo by Rachmaninov and Prokofiev (movements from Romeo and Juliet).  A selection of piano pieces and songs by Debussy, transcribed by Salter, and a rarely heard choral piece by American composer Dominick Argento, his robust setting of Keats’ celebratory poem Hymn to Apollo, complete the programme.
