The City of Birmingham Choir is pleased to be making its first visit to Lichfield Cathedral, bringing a programme of choral music for Lent, complemented by the much-loved Albinoni Adagio for strings and organ. They will be joined by four soloists and the orchestra of the Musical and Amicable Society.
Haydn’s Stabat Mater, a musical gem, is set to the familiar medieval poem reflecting on the Virgin Mary, as she stands witnessing the Crucifixion. The choir and orchestra will be joined for this powerful and emotive piece by the four soloists.
JS Bach’s Cantata no. 12 is another 18th century choral setting of Lenten text – ‘weeping, lamenting, worrying, fearing’. This cantata features alto, tenor and bass soloists who will perform this wonderful work alongside the choir and orchestra.
