Summer Concert 2024 Gold (2).jpg

Ceremony of Psalms - Paul Drayton

Gloria - John Rutter

Gabrieli Motets

Saturday 22nd June 2024

St. Germans Priory Church

Pre-concert Talk - 7.00pm

Performance - 7.30pm

On Saturday 22nd June at 7.30 pm the wonderful Priory Church at St German’s will be filled with the sound of East Cornwall Bach Choir and the trumpets, trombones and tuba that make up Abbey Brass. It promises to be a feast of 20th Century music with the rousing work ‘Gloria’ by John Rutter and the magnificent ‘A Ceremony of Psalms’ by local composer and musical director, Paul Drayton. The audience will be treated to five psalms, each with a different theme: Solitude, Strife, Solace, Salvation and Celebration. As a contrast the choir and Abbey Brass will briefly return to the world of Renaissance music when they perform two motets by Giovanni Gabrieli.


There will be a pre-performance talk at 7pm by Simon Dunbavand, the Musical Director of East Cornwall Bach Choir.
