Musical Director’s Swan Song

The Exeter Bach Society choir, conducted by David Davies, will perform a concert entitled ‘Music in May’ at 7 pm on Saturday, 23 May, in the Exeter University Chapel. Sadly this will be the last time that David will conduct an EBS concert as their Musical Director because he is leaving owing to other commitments at the Cathedral, where he at present Assistant Director of Music.

‘Music in May’ is the last and the least formal of the Exeter Bach Society’s season of concerts and includes a variety of works, performed by the choir and soloists. The programme includes Handel’s ‘Ode for Queen Ann’s Birthday’, some Bruckner motets, madrigals and other popular pieces, perfect for a summer’s evening.

Also popular are the three soloists - Heloise West (soprano), Michael Graham (tenor) and Matthew Cann (bass), all popular singers, especially well-known locally.

The works to be performed are:

Locus iste – Bruckner
Tota pulchra es - Bruckner (Michael Graham - tenor)
Ode for Queen Anne - Handel 
Overture to Radamisto - Handel
Never weather beaten sail - Campion
Il est bel et bon - Passereau
