Buy Tickets Jenkins - The Peacemakers & Rutter - Requiem


The Peacemakers, a brand new choral work composed by Karl Jenkins which was first performed early in 2012, offers inspiration and solace for a time in need of both. It features texts from some of the greatest peacemakers throughout history, including Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Anne Frank and Mother Teresa, as well as words from the Bible and the Qur’an with some new text specially written by Terry Waite.  One line from the Persian mystic poet Rumi sums up the ethos of the work: “All religions, all singing one song: Peace be with you”. 
John Rutter is perhaps better known for his carols and smaller works but he has also composed several large scale works for chorus and orchestra. His Requiemwas first performed in its entirety on 13 October 1985 at the United Methodist Church, Dallas, Texas, conducted by the composer. Since then it has become a firm favourite with choirs and audiences the world over. Though it necessarily has its dark moments, Rutter’s Requiem is unmistakably optimistic in its message of hope and comfort, expressed through the beauty of the chosen texts and Rutter’s uplifting music. It is not entirely surprising that after the tragic events of 9/11 it was this setting of the Requiem that was the preferred choice of music at the many memorial services which followed across the USA. Harrogate Choral Society are honoured the John Rutter himself will be in the audience for the concert in which we will be joined by Hannah Kerr; Soprano, The Gallery Choir from Harrogate Ladies College and the Amici Ensemble.
