Three Spires Singers
Fitkin, Poulenc, Ravel
Three Spires Singers return to Truro Cathedral on November 20th for a special concert to mark the Choir’s 40th Anniversary.
They will join forces with internationally renowned performers of the arts: actor Sam West, pianist Cordelia Williams, counter-tenor Rory McCleery and soprano Rachel Nicholls. The Three Spires Orchestra will be out in force, conducted by Christopher Gray.
As well as a performance of Ravel’s wonderful Piano Concerto in G, the programme includes Poulenc’s energetic and tuneful Gloria.
The main work will be the much anticipated newly commissioned work by composer Graham Fitkin, Humphry Davy – The Age of Aspiration.
The famous Cornish scientist, inventor, philosopher, poet and painter has provided a rich vein of material for this fascinating and accessible 21st Century musical composition.

Music by Mendelssohn, Brahms and Pascoe
Russell Pascoe’s inspirational Secular Requiem was written specially for the Three Spires Singers and was first performed in Truro Cathedral in 2013. This original and moving work also had a London performance in the Cadogan Hall later that year.
Other works being performed will be music by Mendelssohn: the exhilarating Overture to his oratorio St Paul and the famous piece for soprano, choir and orchestra Hear my Prayer – stand by for the eternally popular O for the Wings of a Dove which forms the climax!
There will also be music by Brahms: the wonderful Alto Rhapsody for contralto, chorus and orchestra, and two sections of his German Requiem, Wie Lieblich sind deine Wohnungen and Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit, which feature two of the most beautiful tunes ever written.
The soloist line-up for this concert is very special.
