Pro Nobis Singers Concert. Saturday 12th October

Continuing our 50th anniversary season, we are presenting a one hour recital here in St Mark’s Church on Saturday, 12 October. The programme is entitled ‘Times and Seasons’ and includes two new pieces. Composer and organist of Cartmel Priory, Adrian Self, has a written a sequence of four short pieces especially for us, all setting of poems by his wife Pam. He has called the sequence ‘Called Back to Paradise Again’ and each piece celebrates the joy of creation in one form or another.
The other main piece in the programme is my own dramatic cantata on words by Lucy Crispin, a member of the choir. This is entitled ‘The Song of the Silent Child’ and tells of the wanderings of a lonely child who appears to be remote in an ever-happy land where nothing disturbs the inhabitants, until one day when a storm arises and the silent child finds her place in society as she restores calm.  Also included in the programme will be four short pieces by Gerald Finzi, Zoltan Kodaly, Joseph Rheinberger and Peteris Vasks, all easy listening!
The concert will begin at 7.30 and entry is by programme (£10) available in advance from the Tourist Information Centre in Finkle Street. The cost of the programme includes a glass of wine /fruit juice after the concert.
Do come and join us and help us to celebrate this milestone anniversary if you are free.
