Taste of the Renaissance

THE Levens Choir returns to the live circuit this weekend with a mixture of Renaissance and 21st century music.

The concert in St George’s Church, Kendal, at 7.30pm on Tuesday works through the period of Christ’s Passion from Palm Sunday to the Resurrection; the first half is devoted to unaccompanied music of the 16th and 17th centuries from composers such as Weelkes, Lassus, Victoria, Gesualdo, Monteverdi and others, giving a glimpse of the flowering of the Renaissance in England, Italy and Spain.

After the interval, the choir returns to a work it commissioned in 2000 from Adrian Self to mark its silver jubilee. The work, depicting Christ’s victory over death, draws its texts from the liturgy, the psalms and from the poetry of George Herbert and William Dunbar, the 15th century Scottish poet.

Tickets are available in advance by calling Gill Smith on 01539 730590, or on the door. Entry for children and students is free.
