The Sprig of Thyme by John Rutter
British folk songs arranged by John Rutter
The Creation Part I by Haydn
The Four Seasons by Vivaldi
(Spring and Summer)

The Sprig of Thyme
This delightful suite of folk songs has been
arranged by John Rutter, some of which you will to recognise. The songs tell of love, joy – and some sadness in rural times when life was lived more ‘slowly’. They are delightful and the choir will be accompanied by a small chamber
ensemble.

The Creation Part I
This famous work tells the story of the first four days of the creation - a very dramatic, exuberant and exciting work.

The Four Seasons

Quartet Camerata will bring great energy and
virtuosity to the programme with a performance of two movements from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, one the most popular Baroque compositions.

Our programme tonight will be enhanced by some beautiful solo singing from Simon Woodhead, Philip Daggett and Claire Turner. Plus a small chamber ensemble.
