Saints and Angels Concert
AboutExeter Festival Chorus presents Saints and Angels with guest conductor and composer David Ogden including Kieran White- tenor, Peter King - organ and Cygnet Theatre Company- spoken word.
The lives and stories of saints and angels have frequently been the catalyst for artistic creativity. Exeter Festival Chorus autumn concert gathers together music and words inspired by these mystical beings. We celebrate the life of St Cecilia, the patron saint of music, with compositions by Herbert Howells, Benjamin Britten and Gerald Finzi. William Harris, Eric Whitacre, Judith Weir and our guest conductor, David Ogden, invoke other inhabitants of 'the realms of glory.' This wonderful cornucopia of choral music - traditional, spiritual, contemporary and classical - combined with live spoken poetry continues Exeter Festival Chorus' commitment to push the boundaries through an ongoing tradition of excellence.
