the composer's most joyful and exuberant works. Other works will include Alleluia
by A Guerra, Orlando di Lasso’s In pace in idipsum
, Due pupille amabili
by Mozart, American
composer Gordon Young’s Halleluja!
, and the well-known Howard Goodall setting of
. Soloists will be Hanli Stapela (soprano) and Jonathan Watkins (countertenor).
The choir will be accompanied by the Apple Green Orchestra, under the
capable baton of musical director Tim Roberts.
Dates for the concerts are Sunday
18 June at St Francis of Assisi Anglican Church, Parkview, and Sunday 25 June
at Bedfordview Methodist Church.

reasonably priced R125, and enjoy a not-to-be-missed afternoon of soothing choral music.
