The Marian Consort
The Berkeley Ensemble
David Wordsworth conductor
Celebrating a programme of British composers, two of the country’s leading young ensembles come together to explore bold and fiendish music by father and son Lennox and Michael Berkeley, the current Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir, and two recent works by young composers Matthew Martin and Hilary Campbell.
At the heart of the programme is one of Lennox Berkeley’s finest and most substantial sacred works, the Stabat Mater, a stunning depiction of the human predicament centring on Mary’s suffering during Christ’s crucifixion.
Approximate end time: 9.30pm

Michael Berkeley Catch me if you can
Hilary Campbell Ave Maria
