St Cecilia’s concert and reception
Chapel and Picture Gallery
The Choir of Royal Holloway
Rupert Gough, Conductor
Join us for this popular annual event in celebration of the patron saint of music.
Focussing on the ‘the hope of loving’, the concert will feature choral and orchestral scholars from the university. Alongside two of Brahms beautiful songs for upper voices, horn and harp we have the first performance of Four dances for choir and harp by Paul Lewis written for the Choir. The programme also includes a new work by Royal Holloway alumnus Joby Talbot marking the 200th birthday of Prince Albert. The Choir will also perform works by Ola Gjeilo, James MacMillan and a rising star in the USA, Jake Runestad. The concert is followed by a reception in the Picture Gallery.
