RUTTER’S MASS OF THE CHILDREN & BLACKFORD’S MIRROR OF PERFECTION With Benesonantes (Cobham Hall School Chamber Choir
CONCERT STARTS AT: 7:30 PM
Soprano: Eloise Irving
Baritone: Jack Holton
Inspired by his schoolboy experiences of singing with adult choirs, Rutter wrote this delightful Mass for the Children – packed with captivating melody, harmony and rhythm. Our second work, Mirror of Perfection, was inspired by Richard Blackford’s visit to Assisi. He was so moved to learn of St Francis’s simple life that he went on to write this powerful cantata of great lyrical beauty using the saint’s little-known poems.
Gravesham Choral are joined in this concert by Benesonantes (Cobham Hall School Chamber Choir), professional soloists and orchestra.
