Fire and Flowers: Songs of Love by contemporary British and American Composers
Jubilate Chamber Choir
James Morley Potter, director
A summery feast of sumptuous a cappella music, this concert draws together 20th and 21st century settings of secular poetry, from heart-on-sleeve Whitacre, to the intensity of Lauridsen’s ‘Fire Madrigals’, and finishing with Philip Glass in typically propulsive and unconventional mood. Along the way, we feature recent, rapturous sets of love songs by contemporary British composers David Bednall and Owain Park.
