Luminosa Voices
 

St.Andrew’s Parish Church
Saturday evening 27th November 2021

“Luminosa Voices” is an eighty-strong choir based in Alton.  They seek to bring a fresh take on choral repertoire, encompassing a range of beloved Sacred Music, Opera, Jazz and 20th Century Western Art Music.

Luminosa Voices

Following “lock-down blues” Luminosa Voices returned to live singing on Tuesday evenings at The Maltings in Alton, in preparation for their winter concert.  Thrilled to be singing together once again and with an abundance of new members, the two adult choirs, Luminosa Voices and Chamber Voices, are relishing their vibrant programme of music after their absence from live performance for almost two years.

Luminosa is delighted to be performing at St Andrew’s Church, Farnham on Saturday 27th November at 7:30 p.m.

Gloria poster

Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria and John Rutter’s Gloria will be the explosive and energetic centre of the programme.  Their performance as companion pieces makes for a positive and uplifting experience.

  • Vivaldi’s Gloria RV589, celebrated as “the” Vivaldi Gloria, crackles with excitement and tension, marking a seminal moment of sacred music in early 1700.
  • Rutter’s Gloria is exuberant but very different, making a powerfully stirring impact.  Contrasting intimacy with drama is a hallmark of Rutter’s work.
  • A selection of James Macmillan’s Stratchclyde Motets, to include “O Radiant Dawn” will be performed by Luminosa Chamber Voices, whose clarity and refinement of singing accentuate the moods created by Macmillan and highlight words with dignified and profoundly moving effect.

The concert also features Luminosa’s two youth choirs, Luminosa Rising Voices (ages 10-16) and Young Voices (ages 6-11), performing a range of works based on the theme of Gloria!  The choirs are accompanied by Katherine Dienes-Williams, currently Organist and Master of the Choristers at Guildford Cathedral.
