Performances by St John's Voices have become a regular part of the Cambridge musical landscape, with large audiences coming to hear these eagerly-anticipated concerts.
Our partnership with the Cambridge Baroque Camerata, one of the country's longest-established early-music ensembles, has led to exciting and energetic performances of major works by Bach, Handel, Schütz and Praetorius. The choir also performs a cappella and with the fine Mander organ in the Chapel, including most recently works by Langlais, Mathias, Bach, Monteverdi and others.
Rachmaninov & Golovanov:
For our next concert, we perform motets by Sergei Rachmaninov and his great friend Nikolai Golovanov. The two were friends before the Russian revolution of 1917, and followed parallel paths as performers in the USA and USSR, which toom both musicians away from their composing. While Rachmaninov pursued an international career as a pianist, Golovanov was a hugely respected conductor who continued to write sacred music in secret. Much of this repertoire will be heard in the UK for the first time in this concert.
The concert repertoire will be recorded by St John's Voices in the week following the concert.
