Vocalis chamber choir is busy rehearsing for its next concert ‘Gloria’. Alex Kyle, Vocalis’ Musical Director has chosen a programme of 20th century music by two musical friends and features Francis Poulenc’s Gloria and Benjamin Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb. The concert also includes Herbert Howells's beautiful Salve Regina and a little-known piece by a 17th Century Italian nun, Maria Xaveria Peruchona, with the title Cessate Tympana, Cessate Praelia (cease, drums and battles!)


Poulenc’s Gloria was composed in 1959 and has a freshness and vivacity which is both playful and joyous. The soprano soloist will be Anna Prosser. Britten’s ‘Rejoice in the Lamb’ is a cantata for four soloists and choir composed in 1943 and we hope that Harrogate music lovers will be bewitched by the dancing rhythms and tender harmonies.


David Grealy, assistant organist at Leeds Cathedral will accompany the Poulenc and the Britten. He is regularly in demand as a performer and accompanist.


Wine and soft drinks will be available in the church hub during the interval. Tickets now available - adults: £12 students: £6 online or on the door. Under 19s and essential companions or carers: free entry.
