On Saturday June 17 at 12 noon, Belfast Cathedral will welcome 70 singers from the choirs of Stockholm Cathedral and the Katarina Parish Church in the Swedish capital to give a concert performance entitled ‘Choral Music through the Ages from Scandinavia to Italy.’
With four different choirs under his direction, Gregory Lloyd will conduct singers from the Stockholm Cathedral Boys’ Choir, the Katarina Church Boys’ Choir, Youth Choir and Ensemble.
With music drawn from Nordic climes to the warmth of Italy, the programme will include the following pieces:
Prosessional hymn- Alta trinita beata
A New Song – MacMillan
Ave Maris Stella- Monteverdi
Chichester Psalms (mvt 1) – Bernstein
Ubi Caritas – Gjeilo
Mitt hela hjärta- Kongero
Lux Aurumque- Whitacre
Sommarpsalm (Hymn of Summer)- Åhlén
Heyr Himna smiður- Sigurbjörnsson
Rauði riddarinn (The Red Horseman) – Þorsteinsson
Admission to the concert is free, but there will be a retiring collection for the 2023 Dean of Belfast’s Black Santa Appeal.
