Cappella Nova: Music from Heaven
Conductor Tony Shield
A concert of sacred music by 19th century German composers including the sublime setting of the Mass for Double Choir by Josef Rheinberger. Although less well known than the other composers we shall be singing, Rheinberger’s music is sumptuously expressive.
The concert also includes shorter motets by Mendelssohn and Bruckner, and the wonderful ‘How Lovely are Thy Dwellings’ from Brahms’ German Requiem.
Proceeds from the concert will support the work of Holy Trinity Church, Bradford on Avon.
Formed in 2001, Cappella Nova is a chamber choir from Bath and North Wiltshire, conducted by Tony Shield. They perform three or four concerts each year with a wide range of sacred and secular music, usually in aid of local or national charities.
