Music is a means of“stretching out to the ultimate realities through the medium of beauty.”
Vaughan Williams

The Scottish Chamber Choir, directed by Iain McLarty, opens its 2019/2020 Season with a concert of luminous music from two great British composers: Ralph Vaughan Williams and Kenneth Leighton.

Written for double choir, Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G minor (1921) and Leighton’s Mass Op 44 (1964) combine the lyricism of early English music with 20th century chromaticism and rhythmic intensity. The result is a timeless, reflective choral idiom, creating a sense of human fragility and of searching for consolation in a troubled world.

Organ preludes on hymn tunes by the two composers, played by Simon Leach, organist of St Mary’s Catholic Cathedral, are interspersed between the movements of the choral works.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Masses for Double Choir are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
