Upcoming Concerts: Vivaldi, and Biber

 

Our Rosary Shrine church has a beautiful acoustic and one of the finest ‘Father Willis’ organs in the country. In addition to the fine sacred music sung during our Sunday Masses, we also welcome musicians who may wish to give concerts and recitals in St Dominic’s.

This 17th November at 8pm, the Lyra Singers will perform Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ and the Five Spirituals from Tippett’s ‘A Child of Our Time’.

Tickets at £10 (£8 conc.) available from the Repository of St Dominic’s, or from Ticketsource.

The second upcoming concert for 2017 is actually the first of a series of three. Biber wrote musical meditations on the fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary, and they will be performed here in our Rosary Shrine over the course of three concerts by Nicolette Moonen and Pawel Siwczak of ‘The Bach Players‘.

On 2 December at 7:30pm the first Joyful Mysteries set of The Rosary Sonatas will be performed by candlelight in front of the five Joyful Mystery  chapels of the church. The concert will be interspersed with organ music, and carols will be sung at the beginning and the end – a perfect musical occasion to prepare for

Christmas. Nicolette, who will play the violin, is very accustomed to working with children and welcoming them to her concerts, and she will explain to them how the music works, and she will lead them to discover and interact with the inventive music of Biber, a 17th-century Austrian composer.

We intend for these Rosary Sonata concerts to be child and family-friendly, so children under 18 are not charged for entry. Tickets for adults are £12.50, or just £30 for the entire series of the Rosary Sonatas (i.e., three concerts at £10 each) or £5 on the door for students only. The Sorrowful Mysteries will be performed in Lent on 24 February 2018, and the Glorious Mysteries will be performed in Eastertide on 12 May 2018.

Tickets for the Rosary Sonatas are also available from the Repository at St Dominic’s, or from Ticketsource too.
