The New Elizabethan Singers perform two popular and joyous works of the 18th Century. Bach's 'Magnificat' was written for a five part choir, five soloists and, for its time, a large orchestra. It was composed originally to form part of the evening service (Vespers) but in no way lulls those listening towards peaceful sleep. Similarly, Mozart's 'Solemn Vespers' is solemn only in the sense that it is accompanied by an orchestra rather than an organ. It's Mozart's setting of five Psalms and his version of Magnificat.
The concert takes place in St. Mary's Church, Bridport, starting at 7pm and the choir is joined by an orchestra and professional soloists.
Admission is £12, (under 18s free). Tickets are available from Goadsby Estate Agents in Bridport town centre (opposite the Town Hall).
