Aurora Chorealis

Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir and Players
Greg Morris, conductor

Buxtehude: Membra Jesu nostri
Grieg: Ave maris stella
Gjeilo: Ubi caritas
Gjeilo: Northern Lights
Pärt: Nunc dimittis
MacMillan: Lux aeterna (from Strathclyde Motets)

The northern lights, or the aurora borealis, are beautiful dancing waves of light that have captivated people for millennia.

In Europe, though Iceland and the northern regions of Norway, Sweden and Finland are located within the aurora zone, the spectacle is visible from further afield, and Collegium Musicum of London takes its inspiration for its next concert from composers from these northern lands.

Born in 1637 in Helsingborg, Skåne, Dieterich Buxtehude recognised Denmark as his native country. His cantata cycle Membra Jesu nostri is a unique and impressive work. Based on texts from a medieval Latin hymn, Salve mundi salutare, the cycle contains seven beautiful cantatas, each dedicated to a different part of Christ’s crucified body.

Edvard Grieg was a Norwegian composer and pianist who is widely considered one of the leading lights of the Romantic era. His radiant setting of Ave Maris Stella (Hail, star of the sea) was composed in 1898.

Luminaries from the contemporary music scene, Arvo Pärt, James MacMillan and Ola Gjeilo add further lustre to this wide-ranging celebration of northern European choral music.

Collegium Musicum of London will be conducted, with his usual inspired assurance, by the choir’s musical director Greg Morris.

Bach - St John Passion

Orlando Chamber Choir

Musica Poetica

Bach’s St John Passion combines the words of an ageing eyewitness of Jesus’ crucifixion, reflecting on what must have been the most influential event of his lifetime, with music by a deeply Lutheran composer to whom the Reformation will have given these words new urgency and depth.

The narrative, taken from the German Luther Bible, is attributed to the apostle John, “the disciple whom Jesus loved”. Bach set his testimony to exquisite recitatives which our soloists will interpret for you, with regular interjections from the choir in the guise of various crowds. The stunning arias and reflective chorales, based on hymns familiar in Bach’s time, provide moral summaries of the events.

With its colourful orchestral accompaniment, Bach’s St John Passion paints an expressive and immediate picture of Jesus’ last few days, conveying the anger, fear, resignation and joy in the various voices – and once again impressing and moving the listener with this timeless story of sacrifice and salvation. The chorus Ruht wohl, almost at the end of the passion, is famously hard to sing, not for technical but for emotional reasons.
