   On the eve of Palm Sunday, the EAC sings two works with profound religious origins expressed through captivating melodies and poignant harmonies.

   Haydn's Seven Last Words of Christ was originally written as an orchestral work, and was premiered in 1787. The choral version we are presenting in this concert was arranged in 1796.

   Cecilia McDowall's Stabat mater was first performed in 2004, and has been described as 'an outstanding work of great solemnity and poignancy' (Tempo, 2013), and ' a sophisticated alternative to more well-known settings'.

   Come and enjoy these contemplative works in the warm acoustic of St Mary's Church, Reigate.
