A work exemplifying German musical romanticism, oozing with luscious chords. Eschewing the usual Latin Mass text, Brahms took his text from the Lutheran bible with passages from the gospels of Matthew and John, extracts from other parts of the New Testament and a couple of psalms.
Taking advantage of the Norbury Church grand piano, we are using a piano accompaniment scored for four hands. (When we last looked, James Pelham, our regular accompanist seemed to be blessed with only the regulation two, but we’re told he has something up his sleeve.)
There’s a larger version of the poster on our Programme page. The important things are the date: Saturday April 4th at 7:30, the venue: Norbury Parish Church and the fact that you can get a discount by purchasing tickets in advace: email firstname.lastname@example.org
