Glory at St. Peter Mancroft!

On Saturday night I attended the Keswick Hall Choir Voices and Brass concert at St. Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich. John Aplin was Conductor on this evening of delightful choral music. Soloists on Gloria were Sopranos Rebecca Mundy and Wendy Weal with Carole Wyatt as Contralto.

The programme consisted of Two Motets from Sacrae Symphoniae II by Giovanni Gabrieli. Three Psalms from Psalmen Davids by Heinrich Schutz. Two Motets from Sacrae Symphoniae I by Giovanni Gabrieli. Four Motets from Anton Bruckner: Offertorium: Afferentur regi, Graduale: Locus iste, Hymnus: Vexilla regis and Ecce sacerdos magnus. The evening finished with John Rutter's Gloria.

This was another wonderful performance at St. Peter Mancroft of uplifting and inspiring music. The combination of voices and brass filled the church completely and moved everyone emotionally in the audience. Gloria was a very rousing way to finish the evening. Glory be to God on high. Amen.
