AUTUMN CONCERT 2021: O Radiant Dawn!
Saturday 27 November at 20.15 ]
Lokhorstkerk, Pieterskerkstraat 1, Leiden
On moonlit night was the title of our previous concert, which we recorded in an empty church to keep singing and sharing that music despite everything. But now, two years after our last live concert, we are finally going to perform in front of an audience again. The night is over and a bright new day begins. O radiant dawn!
That golden dawn connects the themes of our concert: youth, imagined as a new day, and love, which warms the heart like the sun. Many composers have been inspired by this, from Renaissance masters such as Thomas Tallis, Orlando di Lasso and Claudio Monteverdi to the contemporary Basque composer Javier Busto.
We also turn our gaze to the east, where the sun rises. Our Indonesian conductor Dody Soetanto added two pieces about the love by modern Indonesian composers to our repertoire, which we would like to introduce you to.
To complete the celebration, O radiant dawn! paves the way into the Christmas season. It is the title of a much-loved work by James MacMillan, which heralds the birth of Christ as “the light of the world.” Enriched with songs by, among others, Johann Sebastian Bach, this is the atmospheric prelude to December.
We cordially invite you to enjoy this varied and lovingly sung program in the pleasant ambiance of the Lokhorstkerk.
