LIGHT AND GOLD
A programme of festive and reflective music including:  

BRUCKNER
Motets: Ave Maria, Virga Jesse
ECCARD
Ich steh an deine Krippen hier; Übers Gebirg Maria geht
MENDELSSOHN
Frohlocket, ihr Völker auf Erden
PÄRT
Magnificat
WHITACRE
Lux Aurumque
Carols by HOLST, BRITTEN, PARRY
Music for solo cello by JS BACH

Join the SCO Chorus for a seasonal journey from the joyful Renaissance to the lyrical expressiveness of today's music by Pärt and Whitacre. Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque (Light and Gold) is extraordinarily lush, and creates a slowly evolving wash of colours and light through the lyrics “Light, warm and heavy as pure gold, and the angels sing softly to the newborn babe.”
