That “Certain Age” - An evening of short operas about “Aging with Grace, Courage & Humor”

That “Certain Age” - An evening of short operas about “Aging with Grace, Courage & Humor”

concert
Samedi, Novembre 11, 2017 - 19:30 - 20:45

That “Certain Age” is an evening of short operas composed by Anne Phillips about aging with grace, courage, and humor. Comic and uplifting musical vignettes from the golden years of life. On the way to Rome to celebrate her 50th birthday a woman meets a young Italian man high above the clouds. An elderly former actress is seated in a park. A filmmaker making a movie about death insists she move. Conversation about life beyond the womb by two unborn children. Grave misunderstandings when a husband pays his respects to a passed partner with his new wife in tow. Also featuring excerpts from Phillips' musical Damn Everything But the Circus and more.

IN A STRANGE LAND: music of William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, before, during and after the English Reformation

Antiphon
IN A STRANGE LAND
Music of William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, before, during and after the English Reformation
St Giles’ Church, Chollerton, Hexham NE46 4TF
Saturday 11th November 2017 at 7.30pm

The title for this concert, “In a Strange Land”, illustrates the sense of alienation which was felt at during the Reformation period, not least by these two composers, when the familiar assumptions and practices of Catholicism were taken away, restored and taken away again under Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth I. Byrd and Tallis both adapted and evolved their music, sometimes writing clandestine music for Catholic patrons against the reigning monarch of the day.

William Byrd (1543–1623):
Mass for Four Voices: Kyrie, Gloria, Agnus Dei
O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth our Queen
Teach me, O Lord
Sing joyfully
Ne irascaris Domine
Vigilate

Thomas Tallis (c1505–1585):
Missa Puer natus est: Gloria, Agnus Dei
Why fum’th in fight
If ye love me, keep my commandments
O Lord, give Thy Holy Spirit
Videte miraculum
