A wonderful programme of 21st century choral music celebrating the theme of Light. This may be a 'modern' music concert but guaranteed to be highly melodic and no fear of dissonance! An evening of beautiful music with a line up of top class soloists.

Musical Director, David Ballard says "This might just be the project I’ve worked on as a musician that I’m most excited about. I don’t care if you like choral music or not - you need to come and listen. Great contemporary music, great soloists, and a choir who want to show you they love it. Be there."

David's enthusiasm is infectious and no wonder when you consider that the concert will feature a major work by Howard Goodall CBE who will be familar to many as the presenter of many television programmes with a musical theme and as the prodigious composer of musicals, choral music and a multitude of television theme music such as Blackadder, Mr Bean and, possibly, most popular The Vicar of Dibley.

Eternal Light: A Requiem was originally commissioned by Rambert Dance Company as a choral-orchestral-dance piece and has quickly earned a firm place in the choral repertoire.The composer tweeted: "Have a very happy memory of a concert with my school choir in Cromer Parish Church in the summer of 1974. Not in a million years would I have guessed then something like this by me would one day fill its arches: Eternal Light: A Requiem on April 28th".

Also on the programme are works by the widely performed American composer Morten Lauridsen, the Norwegian Ola Gjeilo and the Devon-based composer of sacred music Graham Keitch whose works are rapidly becoming popular and frequently performed by choirs and in cathedrals around the world.
