This Day! - CD Launch & Concert

On 14 December 1918, women were permitted to stand for Parliament and were granted the vote for the first time in British history. As part of the centenary celebrations for this milestone and to raise awareness of persistent inequalities in society, Blossom Street presents repertoire by famous and lesser-known female composers, both living and those from previous generations, including Rebecca Clarke’s Ave Maria, Judith Weir's Holy Innocents, Kerry Andrew's Night-Time Songs and Elizabeth Poston's The Water of Tyne.

All of the performers on the Naxos disc This Day, recorded in 2018 and due to be released in January 2019, are women, showcasing works for upper voices.

The Secret Marriage

Neglected today, The Secret Marriage was in its time more popular even than Mozart’s comedies. The fifty-third opera of Domenico Cimarosa (in his time celebrated from Naples to St. Petersburg), when the Emperor Leopold heard it during its first run in Vienna he demanded it be repeated in full that same evening.

It was a huge success and had well over 100 outings in its first year alone, reaching every European capital in the next few years. Not so much looking back to Mozart, Cimarosa’s wit and style prefigure Rossini, born three weeks after the opera’s premiere – this household sitcom was written almost 25 years before The Barber of Seville.

In HGO’s production the opera, with its nimble score, buzzes from the start with effervescent energy. Cimarosa’s score elicits a huge range of colour, and ensembles and arias abound for the very busy cast of six: an extraordinary variety ranging from deft patter and raucous argument to glorious lyricism, all in perfect balance.

HGO’s pacy staging recognises that this is at heart pure musical theatre: sometimes subtle, sometimes slapstick, but always with an steady and compelling connection to the unfolding story.

Mozart: Requiem, Bach: Magnificat

Mozart’s Requiem, completed after his death by Süssmayr, is one of the most popular pieces of sacred choral works with origins shrouded in mystery as no record exists as to who commissioned the work which adds to the Mozart myth.

Coupled with Bach’s great Magnificat, we bring you another great masterpiece, written during Bach’s time as Thomaskantor in Leipzig. This setting of the “Song of Mary” is brilliantly crafted and wonderful on the ear.

Catriona Holsgrove – soprano
Emily Wenman – soprano
Angela Simkin – mezzo-soprano
John Pierce – tenor
Richard Walshe – bass

The Corelli Orchestra

Gloucester Choral Society
Adrian Partington – conductor
