BUTTERWORTH The Banks of Green Willow

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS An Oxford Elegy

BRAHMS Ein deutsches Requiem, Op. 45

Mary Bevan soprano
David Stout baritone
Rowan Atkinson narrator
The Choir of The Queen's College

Owen Rees conductor

This concert on the 100th anniversary of the armistice which ended the Great War brings together German and English music, the centrepiece being Brahms’ magisterial German Requiem. Vaughan Williams’ An Oxford Elegy received its public premiere at The Queen’s College in 1952; its melancholy nostalgia is appropriate to the theme of a world destroyed by the Great War. George Butterworth died at the Battle of The Somme and his orchestral idyll, The Banks of Green Willow has become associated with the sacrifice of his generation. Narrated by Rowan Atkinson and with star soloists Mary Bevan and David Stout this concert will be a moving tribute on Remembrance Day.

Choir of The Queen's College, Oxford
Owen Rees

Taverner’s Missa Gloria tibi trinitas is one of the great glories of Tudor music, and Taverner gave it pride of place in the manuscript preserving the repertory from his time as the first Choirmaster at the new Cardinal College (now Christ Church) in Oxford. The drama of this music comes from the striking alternation of sections scored for the full six-voice choir and intricate solo sections. Our concert reveals how this dramatic aspect might have sounded in original performances by the largest Tudor church choirs: we achieve this by combining the forces of Owen Rees’s two ensembles: Contrapunctus (singing the solo sections) and the Choir of The Queen’s College, to provide combined forces of some 40 singers, matching the Tudor Chapel Royal. Other works in the programme include Taverner’s supremely beautiful Leroy Kyrie and Audivi vocem de caelo.

Your tickets will be emailed to you shortly after checkout. You are welcome to either print these out and bring them with you or to display them on a mobile device. Please email choir@queens.ox.ac.uk with any queries relating to the event or to the booking process.
