The Ripieno Choir honours the gift of music with two settings of the text Musica Dei donum – one by the Flemish-born Renaissance composer Orlandus Lassus and the other by John Rutter, whose seventieth birthday we celebrate with this programme. Unusually, Rutter’s piece has an accompanying solo flute and we will be joined by multi-award winning flautist Catherine Coulter-Young for the evening.
We continue our salute to John Rutter with his witty and tuneful Five Childhood Lyrics and pay tribute to the recently deceased John Tavener with his iconic settings of William Blake's equally iconic poems The Lamb and The Tyger.
This is conductor David Hansell’s 20th summer with Ripieno and for the rest of the programme he has chosen some favourite pieces from the last twenty years, including possibly the finest English part song; a short piece written to mark his sixtieth birthday (of which Ripieno gave the first public performance); and a song by Flanders & Swann . . .
