WOKINGHAM CHORAL SOCIETY
and the Hampstead Chamber Orchestra
With Benedict Lewis-Smith, continuo.
Conductor: James Morley Potter
Doors open at 6pm. Bar: 6:15pm Pre-concert talk 6:30pm
Despite being composed for choir, soloists and orchestra following the deaths of three of his children, Antonín Dvořák's "Stabat Mater" is a wonderfully lyrical and uplifting work. It was clearly written from the heart and it deserves to be performed more often.
For this performance Wokingham Choral Society will be supported by the Hampstead Chamber Orchestra and professional soloists.
This will be a rare Lenten treat and the beautiful tunes will stay with you long after the performance has ended.
