Mary, mother of Christ, is the inspiration for the Exeter Festival Chorus Easter concert programme. Miserere was sung from the mid 1500’s, at some point, it became forbidden to transcribe the music and it was allowed to be performed only at particular services at the Sistine Chapel, thus adding to the mystery surrounding it. Mozart, as a teenager, so the story goes, once heard Allegri’s Miserere being performed in the Sistine Chapel. The young composer apparently flew home and wrote down the entire work from memory. Now you can hear it in Exeter!

In addition, Barber’s Agnus Dei, his own choral arrangement of the Adagio for Strings, is followed by Alexander Levine’s Morning Prayer, celebrating the life of a Russian Orthodox priest, assassinated for his beliefs. The concert ends with Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater, his setting of the 13th century hymn to the mother of Christ, as she stands at the foot of the cross, beholding her son’s crucifixion.

Not to be missed.
