Commotio Christmas Concert 3rd December, Merton College, Oxford
Date: November 10, 2011
Location: England, United Kingdom
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
Commotio, Oxford’s Contemporary Voices, offer a seasonal sensation of choral music to start your Christmas celebrations. Featuring lesser known works by established composers and championing the works of emerging composers, Commotio offer something a little more exciting than the average choral fare!
Written prior to his treatise “Method of Composing with Twelve Tones Related Only to Each Other”, Schoenberg’s setting of Meyer’s poetic essay on Peace is a tour de force, passing from a central major key to realms of atonality.
Steering back in to the safe harbour of the tonal, works by Allain, Copi, Gorton, Ferko and Cusworth will act as the Christmas baubles on the Commotio tree this year, with an equally sparkly tinsel of works by Fricker, Williamson and Locklair. Commotio is very pleased to be singing MacMillan’s Bring us, O Lord God, commissioned for fellow Oxford choir, Schola Cantorum in memory of our mutual friend and singer, Lydia Press.
Come join Commotio for a fantastic festive feast of contemporary choral music!
