Dutch Chamber Choir sings in the Der Aa-church

On Thursday 23rd October the Dutch Chamber Choir, conducted by Paul McCreesh, will perform a programme of music  by English composers in the Der Aa-church.

In the Netherlands  he is always a welcome guest, but this is the first time  that he has conducted  the Dutch Chamber choir since 1996. Composers such as Howells, Elgar and Britten feature prominently in this programme that highlights 19th and 20th century  British choral repertoire.

Programme:
Elgar – Give unto the Lord
Gibbons (arr. Dearmer) – Drop, drop, slow tears
Walton – A litany: Drop, drop slow tears
Howells – A sequence for St. Michael
MacMillan – A Child’s Player
