Choral works feature prominently in British music throughout the centuries, with strong ties to the Anglican liturgical music, complimented by the colourful collection of folksongs across the British Isles. Known for its transparent harmonies and delicate text setting, contemporary British choral music inherited the artistry from the hands of Purcell, Elgar and Vaughan Williams, and established a unique sound that sets itself apart from the rest of the world.

In the third concert of our “Contemporary Choral Music” series, we present to you much-loved classics by Howard Goodall, Bob Chilcott, and John Tavener, along with secular pieces by Michael Tippett and Madeleine Dring. The exciting double-chorus works by William Harris and John Rutter are surely not to be missed, as are the exquisite set of madrigals by Paul Mealor, the Young Welsh composer commissioned by Prince William to write music for the Royal Wedding in 2011.

英國的合唱音樂一直備受注目,除了與聖公會的禮儀音樂息息相關,也被不列顛諸島豐富多彩的民歌傳統深深影響。英國當代合唱音樂繼承了浦賽爾、艾爾加、以及佛漢·威廉士的藝術性,以清澈的和聲和細膩的配樂,建立出獨樹一格的英倫新聲。

香港和聲「當代合唱音樂沙龍」第三回,精選英國當代作曲家的合唱作品,包括古鐸、契考特、泰雲納膾炙人口的經典,狄伯特和德林的世俗樂曲;不容錯過的還有哈里斯和瑞特的雙合唱作品,以及米洛的四首玫瑰牧歌-這位新晉的威爾斯作曲家在2011年受英國威廉王子委託,為其皇家婚禮譜寫音樂。
