Arvo Pärt and Bob Chilcott – what a magnificent pairing! Each of the seven antiphons in these two works in is a description of Jesus Christ, his lineage and attributes. Set in Latin and German, all begin with the exclamation ‘O’. These two significant works by Pärt and Chilcott are very different in their musical expression of the traditional Advent antiphons and Anne Cawrse has taken elements that sit at the heart of the Antiphons – humanity, history, love, redemption – as the basis of her new works.
Seven Advent Antiphons – Bob Chilcott
New Works – Anne Cawrse (world premieres)
Seven Magnificat Antiphons – Arvo Pärt
Concert duration – approx 1 hour 10 mins (no interval)
