The combined choirs of Exeter Philharmonic and Exeter Cathedral will be performing exciting "new" works by both Patrick Hawes and Vaughan Williams.

March 17th 2012 Exeter Cathedral 7.30pm


Patrick Hawes: Lazarus
Vaughan Williams : A Cambridge Mass







The combined choirs of Exeter Philharmonic and Exeter Cathedral will be performing exciting new works by both Patrick Hawes and Vaughan Williams. Both works involve double choir with organ and orchestra and will prove to be an evenings music to remember.
It seems impossible to suggest a new work by Vaughan Williams, however the Cambridge Mass is a recently discovered work. Having lain in a folder for 110 years it was found by Conductor Alan Tongue only in 2007. The work was transcribed and premiered last March by Alan Tongue to great critical acclaim.
The work was written by a young Vaughan Williams whilst at Trinity College, Cambridge as part of his Doctor of Music exam. Despite his youth the work shines as that of a grand composer and is his earliest large scale work known.
Lazarus by Patrick Hawes sets the story of his raising up from death by Jesus .The text of the story of Lazarus is sung in English and weaves with the Latin words of the Requiem, the Mass for the dead.
The English text, derived from St. John's Gospel, is in a new translation by Patricks brother, Andrew who has also written the poem Jesus Wept sung at the climax of the work.
The choirs of Exeter Philharmonic and Exeter Cathedral choirs will have recorded the work within Exeter Cathedral in January 2012. CDs will be available to purchase on the night of the concert.
In recent years, Patrick Hawes has emerged as one of the countrys most popular and inspirational composers. Patrick became Composer in Residence for Classic FM and composed a number of pieces inspired by English landscapes: Towards the Light inspired by the Norfolk coast and Song of Songs and Fair Albion: Visions of England.
In 2009 Patrick was commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales to compose the Highgrove Suite which was premiered at Covent Garden on the Princes sixtieth birthday.
