This programme features four masters. Three are among the Choir’s favourite composers from three musical epochs: Classic (Mozart), Romantic (Schubert) and Modern (Schafer). The fourth master is Dante Alighieri, the 14th century Italian author of The Divine Comedy. He provided the text of an atmospheric new work for choir and strings by brilliant Canadian composer R Murray Schafer. Based on selections from Dante’s Volume III - Paradiso - the new piece is entitled The Love that Moves the Universe. It is another world premiere, and the third of the Choir’s six 40th anniversary commissions supported by the Arts Partners in Creative Development.
