Royal Free Music Society Choir and Groupe Vocal Antara: Summer Concert

For their summer concert, the Royal Free Music Society will be joined by the Groupe Vocal Antara from Paris. The two choirs present a colourful and international mix of music – including both Renaissance and 20th Century works.

 

The RFMS will be singing mainly British pieces – from Thomas Tallis’ 4-part Tudor motet 'If ye love me’ and William Boyce’s ‘Alleluia’ to the more modern work of John Rutter – ‘For the beauty of the earth’, ‘The Lord bless you and keep you’ and ‘Gaelic Blessing’, as well as Bob Chilcott’s‘ Jubilate’.

 

The Groupe Vocal Antara focuses on songs in Spanish and from Latin America.  They will perform pieces from Spain, Peru and Argentina – including what’s thought to be the earliest printed work of vocal polyphony in the Americas - the 17th Century hymn in the Quechua language, 'Hanacpachap'.  Other pieces include 'Teresica Hermana’ - a love song from the Spanish Renaissance, and 20th Century Argentine composer, Ariel Ramirez’s ‘Alfonsina y el mar’.
