St Ives Choral Society presents Songs of Old America featuring Copland: Old American Songs, Rutter: Feel the Spirit and other Spirituals, directed by Alison Daniels, with Olga Elbourn – piano and Felicity Hayward – soprano.
This year we bring you a programme of music inspired by America. Copland’s Old American Songs are settings of American folk tunes collected in the 19th and early 20th centuries, including the famous Shaker melody “Tis the gift to be simple”. The songs sung by African American slaves have inspired many composers in Britain and further afield. Rutter’s Feel the Spirit brings together seven of those spirituals including When the Saints and Joshua fit the Battle of Jericho, with the choir being joined by a soprano soloist.
Friday 14th June. Doors 7:15pm / Show 8:00pm
General Admission Tickets £15*
