Songs of the Rose
Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 June at 18:45 in the Epworth Chapel. Tickets: R100 (Adults) and R60 (Scholars) - Pre-booking is essential. SONGS OF THE ROSE, featuring guest artist Christopher Duigan (piano), weaves together music by a number of South African composers. At the heart of the programme is a sacred cantata entitled Mother of God by Stephen Carletti. This eight movement work will be premiered by the Epworth High School Choir accompanied by string orchestra and piano in these two performances. This is the third Epworth commission in two years. Tying in with the theme of the cantata is an early Baroque setting of the Ave Maria by Italian composer, Giulio Caccini, and a piano improvisation on the Annunciation Carol. There are other works on the programme by Simon Bester, Christopher Duigan, Grant McLachlan and David Orr. A choral arrangement of Amanda McBroom’s popular song, The Rose, originally performed by Bette Midler, concludes the concert. Following an overwhelming public response to SONGS OF LIGHT in 2016, there will be two performances of SONGS OF THE ROSE.
