This stunning program with the St George’s Cathedral Consort and directed by Joseph Nolan, begins with the beautiful Allegri’s Miserere, which might never have been performed outside of the Vatican were it not for the audacity of a 14-year-old Mozart who transcribed it from memory after hearing a single performance. The world has since come to love the haunting quality of the music.
The second half of this concert is devoted to the rich, sonorous harmonies of the blues and contemporary classics. The Lion Sleeps Tonight arranged by Jonathan Rathbone, is great fun and the ABBA arrangements demonstrate the sheer genius of the original compositions.
