 NCS Summer Concert


After the very successful and well-received performance of Haydnís The Seasons, we turn our attention to our summer concert at Douai Abbey, where Morten Lauridsenís Lux Aeterna will be one of the devotional works on the programme. We are sure the wonderful acoustic will help us to do justice to this work. Besides savouring Vaughan Williamsís Three Shakespeare Songs, lovers of English music will not be disappointed, as they will find Elgar, Britten and Rutter all represented as well. There will be familiar favourites and some lesser-known pieces to enjoy. 

The Abbey Church is an ideal venue to enhance some inspiring ecclesiastical music, with the choir accompanied by organist Steve Bowey and conducted as ever by Cathal Garvey. We hope for a balmy evening and look forward to welcoming you to a programme of music to delight and stir the heart.

Lauridsen - Lux Arterna
