Lucy Goddard, director

Orlando Chamber Choir’s autumn concert falls on the eve of Remembrance Day and four days after the 350th anniversary of Heinrich Schütz’s death. What better repertoire to suit the mood than music about the melancholy of mortality, the promise of peace and salvation and the expectation of eternal life in glorious light – all composed by Schütz himself? The programme extends his exquisite large-scale Musikalische Exequien with more intimate single and double choir motets, showcasing the tonal warmth and radiance of Germany’s greatest late-Renaissance composer. Join us for an unforgettable memento mori concert with nunc est bibendum in the break!

Programme details

Heinrich Schütz (1585 - 1672)
Musicalische Exequien:
Nacket bin ich von Mutterleibe kommen
Also hat Gott die Welt geliebt
Herr, wenn ich nur dich habe
Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener in Frieden fahren
Die mit Tränen säen
Selig sind die Toten
Meine Seele erhebt den Herren
Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener in Frieden fahren
Ich bin die Auferstehung und das Leben
