Beautiful voices, excellent musicians and the splendid environment of the Igreja Matriz in São Brás - a splendid celebration of Easter by the Coro dos Amigos, Luís Conceição and the Trio Celestion.
The music will be taken from various sources and sung in various languages. The newest piece actually sounds as if it might be the oldest - Ubi Caritas, by the brilliant Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. As he is now living in New York, America is eager to 'adopt' the composer and generally claims that he is influenced by American jazz and film scores, but this piece is definitely rooted in Gregorian chant.
Being a (loosely) Easter concert, the Choir has taken advantage of the rich liturgy of Easter to perform one of the many compositions on the Stabat Mater, this one by Joseph Rheinberger. Rheinberger’s Stabat Mater, from 1890, is a particularly tuneful composition and one that the choir enjoys throwing itself into; traditional, but with elements of popular opera. It will be accompanied by Luís Conceição and the Trio Celestion.
The concert will be performed at 21.00 at the Igreja Matriz, São Brás de Alportel on Friday 21st April. Entry is free but donations will be very welcome.
