CANTORES SALICIUM IN CONCERT
WITH CAMERATA SALICIUM
Choral and instrumental music
Bolton Priory Saturday 09 June 2018 at 19.30
The main feature in Cantores Salicium’s summer concert is Bach’s
vivid and energetic Magnificat, accompanied by organist Nicholas O’Neill. This is preceded by movements from Monteverdi’s Vespers of
1610 and more contemplative music by Byrd, Parsons and Philips. Inkeeping with the choir’s wish to give opportunities to young
musicians, two young players will participate. Ben Buckner will play a sonata by Telemann and Caitlyn Mitchell will play an oboe concerto
by Albinoni, each accompanied on the organ. Together with flautists Sarah Glossop and Hilary Ashton, these two young musicians will have
what is for young people a rare opportunity to play continuo and obligato in the Magnificat. Not only will they play alongside a
professional organist, but with two post-graduate students from the Royal Northern College of Music. Michael Gibson and David Cane will
sing the tenor and bass arias, while the soprano and alto solos will be sung by members of the choir.
Tickets for this exciting concert are £12 from Castleberg Sports, Settle,
choir members or on the door. Under 16s are free.
