JANUARY Sunday, 21 January 2018  4:30pm Sunday Recital Pegasus Choir Directed by Jessica Norton In the Beginning What better way to start the year than with a concert focused on new beginnings? This hour-long recital by award-winning Pegasus choir takes our audience on a musical journey reflecting on the biblical story of creation, with works echoing the seven days of creation. Our programme features popular and lesser- known works, ranging from William Harris’s glorious Faire is the Heaven to Granville Bantock’s Sea Sorrow and John Tavener’s The Lamb. It culminates with In The Beginning, a beautiful and rarely heard work by Aaron Copland for solo voice and choir that sets the Genesis creation story with expressive and innovative word-painting.
