Popular and Profound - Cupar Choral Society Spring Concert
Cupar Choral Society’s Spring Concert brings together Sir Karl Jenkins’ hugely-popular Adiemus and The Armed Man and a selection from Feel the Spirit, John Rutter’s jazz-influenced setting of familiar American spirituals.
First performed in 2000, The Armed Man is subtitled A Mass for Peace and is dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis. With over 2000 performances to date, the work has a universal appeal, with its powerful evocation of the terrible consequences of war and its enduring message of peace and tolerance – a message that is sadly relevant today.
Choristers will be joined by a virtuoso orchestra, The Cupar Consort, which includes well-known Fife musicians and musicians from much further afield.
The Society is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase the remarkable talents of our four young soloists: Leah Karrim (soprano), Isabel Haynes (contralto), Matthew Cobain (tenor) and Brandon Low (baritone).
Michael Segaud, the Society’s Musical Director, said:
“Watch out for these four in future! They all deserve to go far, and they are fantastic ambassadors for music-making in Fife”.
