About this event
Commotio return to the stunning acoustic of Merton College Chapel to perform one of the most spectacular pieces in the contemporary choral repertoire. Using the first verses of the Bible, Copland is at his most evocative in this narration of the Creation, set for choir and mezzo soprano. Commotio will also perform the world premieres of works by Allain and Pott. In preparation for their forthcoming CD (to be released on Naxos) several carols by local composer, Bob Chilcott will also feature. Tickets available from www.commotio.org/BuyTicket1.htm or on the door.
Commotio are Oxford's leading performers of contemporary choral music. A mixed choir, combining local singers and members of the university, Commotio strive to bring more interesting choral music to the fore. Commotio is directed by Matthew Berry. 'Commotio's concert ... bore all the hallmarks of this extraordinary choir - a fascinating mix of different styles by mainly contemporary composers, all showcasing these singers' remarkable rapport and range of techniques..' - Nicola Lisle,Oxford Times.
