Kent Chamber Choir, conductor Alan Vincent, presents a wide range of splendid choral music in a variety of styles from the early l7m century to the present day by British, European and American composers. Included are James MacMillan’s powerful anthem O radiant down, a favourite chorus from Johannes Brahms’s German Requiem, Charles Stanford’s beautiful part-song The blue bird, and catchy arrangements of old standards by the likes of Cole Porter and Marvin Hamlisch. Other composers represented are Ola Gjeilo, ZoltfinKodrily, Robert Ramsey and Thomas Weelkes. Francis Poulenc’s three French chansons spice things up and Alan Vincent’s rhyhmic Viva la musica! aims to get your feet tapping.
Guest soloist is gifted young soprano Fiona Jackson, winner of Kent Chamber Choir’s 2016 Kath Topping Vocal Award for aspiring professionals. Accompanied by Roger Harris she sings the precocious maid Despina’s saucy aria from Mozart’s Cosifan tutte, and Tesori & Scanlon’s unique The girl in
l4G which contrasts snippets from Mozart’s Queen of the Night show-stopper with show-style vocals.
