While overseas travel may be difficult these days, for one afternoon you can join Caritas on a journey around Europe through a collection of beautiful choral music. Together we shall go to Estonia with Arvo Pärt, Germany with the great George Frederic Handel, Spain with Alonso Lobo, and further. For this special expedition we will be bringing along our extra special guests, The Daffodil String Ensemble, with whom we are thrilled to be in collaboration in the impressive Credo by the Italian composer Antonio Lotti and the stunning Let the bright seraphim by Handel. All money raised will support some excellent charities - more information on this will follow soon.
As a taster for the concert, here is the final section of Arvo Pärt’s beautiful work ’The Deer’s Cry’ which we are looking forward to performing in full; we recorded this extract at the final rehearsal just before our March 2020 concert in St Martin’s Roath which had to be cancelled at short notice due to the first lockdown.
We very much hope to see you on 23rd October!
