Popule Meus - Music For Good Friday

St. Nicholas Church

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Collegium Chamber Choir
Mark Duley conductor

The title is drawn from the Improperia, a series of antiphons and responses for the Good Friday liturgy (more commonly known as "The Reproaches"). These are some of the most emotionally charged texts for this holy day, linking Old Testament acts of God to the events of the passion as Christ remonstrates with humanity. The centrepiece of this one-hour concert will be Robert White's beautiful "Lamentations" and the programme will also contain works by Bruckner, Victoria, John Sanders and Jonathan Harvey.
