Joy and Light at Wells Cathedral
 
The English Chamber Orchestra will join Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society under new Conductor Jeremy Cole for joyous and moving choral and instrumental music on Saturday 16th November.
 
The choir will sing one of John Rutter's most celebratory and glorious works, Magnificat, and Morten Lauridsen's poignantly beautiful Lux Aeterna (Eternal Light).
 
ECO, one of the world's leading chamber orchestras, will accompany the choir and also perform Arvo Pärt's Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Brittan. The soprano soloist is Elizabeth Atherton.
 
Conductor Jeremy Cole is currently Acting Organist and Master of the Choristers at Wells Cathedral, having been Assistant Organist since 2017. Of his new role with the choir he said: ''I am delighted to be taking on the role of Musical Director of the Wells Cathedral Oratorio Society for the 2019-20 season.
 
''For this concert we are offering a wonderfully varied programme. Arvo Pärt's sublime and moving Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Brittan is one of my very favourite pieces, Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna contains some beautifully shimmering choral textures, and Rutter's Magnificat is festive and joyful.''
