Choral programmes are often organized by similarities of the composers included or the texts being sung or chronologically by the eras they represent. But for this concert, we’re experimenting with affective elements of music, grouping pieces together by the emotions they evoke. Of course, all music affects us emotionally, even those by composers who try expressly to not be expressive. Our Moods and Modes concert is more playful in concept, taking us on an evening’s journey through cheerfulness, piety, intensity, playfulness, sorrow and humour. Music of Bennet, Antognini, two Bachs, Dvorak, Beckwith, Berring, Alfven, Bernstein, Dowland, Josquin and Brazinskas.
