Music in Durham

The Oaks

Durham University Chamber Choir, directed by Adam Whitmore, end their year with a choral celebration of the British Countryside, Memory and the Divine, combining musical imagery of earthly and heavenly beauty. The first half of the programme circles the Vauday Part Songs, by Durham alumnus Patrick Hawes, written as a reflection of the Grimsthorpe Castle Estate. The programme also includes Ivor Gurney’s powerful ‘Since I Believe in God the Father Almighty’  and looks back to early Renaissance polyphony with Nicolas Gombert’s solemn Lenten motet, ‘Media Vita’.
