Camerata Chamber Choir presents...

POETRY IN MUSIC


Saturday 30 April, 7.30pm
St George's Presbyterian Church, 2 The Terrace, Takapuna


Our first concert for this year contains two works, both dealing with horizons. Poetry is central in both.

We start at home, with New Zealand composer Christopher Marshall's To The Horizon: Images of New Zealand.  This expressive song cycle includes the well-known poems Horizon by Ian Wedde, Walking On My Feet by A.R.D. Fairburn, The Magpies by Denis Glover and On the Swag by R.A.K. Mason. John Parker will read each poem before we sing it.

Then we move to Great Britain, with Horizons by English composer Andrew Carter.  This at once lively and reflective music perfectly underscores poetry by Anne Brontë, Arthur Hugh Clough, John Masefield, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Rudyard Kipling and Alfred, Lord Tennyson.  The work is scored for solo soprano, chorus and piano.  Gina Sanders will be our soprano soloist and Jennifer Gorbey our pianist.
