NCS September Concert

23rd September

8.00pm, St Barnabas Cathedral, North Circus Street, Nottingham NG1 5AE

Nottingham Chamber Singers
Nottingham Classical Players

Emily Hodkinson mezzo-soprano, Peter Siepmann organ, Rachel Parkes conductor

Duruflé Requiem & Quatre Motets Sur Des Themes Gregoriens

Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine

Lili Boulanger Pie Jesu

Elgar Sospiri

Franck Psalm 150

The Music

From the opening organ rumblings of Franck’s grand and sparkling Psalm 150, to the brooding pre-war angst of Lili Boulanger’s Pie Jesu and Elgar’s achingly beautiful Sospiri, we aim to give you a flavour of the styles and sensibilities of some of the greatest Romantics of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Relax into Faure’s well-known and beloved cantique de Jean Racine, and lose yourself in the ancient chants that expand and unfurl in Maurice Duruflé’s uplifting Quatre Motets. 

The second half of the concert will be devoted to Duruflé’s profoundly moving and deeply consoling Requiem, a work you will be guaranteed to fall in love with as the melodies linger long afterwards in your memory.

The Venue

The sumptuous Gothic interior of St Barnabas Cathedral, the work of Augustus Pugin, one of the architects of the Houses of Parliament, is a hidden gem in the heart of the city.

The Cathedral is easy to find – located on the corner of Derby Road and North Circus Street, facing Nottingham’s Albert Hall. The Cathedral is approx. 5 mins away from the Theatre Royal tram stop, there is a bus stop outside the front door plus plenty of on-street parking and car parks close by.
