Gloucester Choral Society 2017 / 2018 Season
Parry Festival: Saint Cecilia Singers Chamber Concert
Saint Cecilia Singers
Holst: Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda
Bridge: Two part songs
Parry: Songs of Farewell
The Saint Cecilia Singers, Gloucester’s foremost chamber choir, are conducted by Jonathan Hope, Assistant Director of Music at Gloucester Cathedral, in a concert centred on Parry’s Songs of Farewell. Parry died soon after completing these, and they provide a moving testament to his life and musicianship. The concert will also include music by Parry’s pupils Gustav Holst and Frank Bridge.
