Gerald Finzi’s family settled in Harrogate during World War I, and from 1915 he studied music at Christ Church, High Harrogate. His Clarinet Concerto, which gives the soloist generous melodies, was written for the 1949 Three Choirs Festival, and Finzi conducted its first performance.  Harrogate Choral are delighted that Emma Johnson is joining them to perform the work. Emma grew up in London. In 1984 she won BBC Young Musician of the Year and later she became a winner of the Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York. Since then she has established herself as an international clarinettist. Finzi’s work Lo, the full, final sacrifice is a festival anthem for SATB choir and organ, composed by Gerald Finzi in 1946. Finzi subsequently orchestrated the piece for its performance at the Three Choirs Festival in 1947. Since then it has become a staple of the Anglican choral tradition.
Gabriel Fauré deliberately avoided the grander kind of orchestral music that could easily have brought him fame and fortune. He preferred instead to embrace an elegant and subtle musical language and his Requiem, composed in 1888, is scored intimately. In its sequence of movements the Requiem departs significantly from the standard liturgical text. Fauré included two new sections, the lyrical Pie Jesu and the transcendent In Paradisum, with its soaring vocal line and murmuring harp accompaniment. The prevailing mood is one of peacefulness and serenity, and the work has often been described, quite justly, as a Requiem without the Last Judgement.
Harrogate Choral are joined by the Manchester Camerata; Christina Jones, Soprano; and Phil Wilcox, Baritone
