LORD! COME AWAY!
BRITISH MUSIC FOR VOICES AND STRINGS
1 MARCH, 15:00
HUGO LAMBRECHTS AUDITORIUM, PAROW
This Sunday afternoon concert provides a dramatic sweep across centuries of glorious British music for voices and strings, along with a work by South Africa’s much-loved Hendrik Hofmeyr. Lord! Come away! comprises Vaughan Williams’ fervently impassioned Four Hymns for tenor and viola, Benjamin Britten’s dramatic cantata Phaedra for mezzo soprano, and Dido’s heart-wrenching Lament by Henry Purcell, and is an essential concert for lovers of British and South African musical composition. Directed by the English conductor and pianist Gary Matthewman.
