Addison Singers at St Peter’s: The Gravity of Kindness
On Saturday December 7th 2019 @ 7.30pm at St. Peter’s Church, Acton Green, 89 Southfield Rd, Chiswick W4 1BB, the Addison Singers present the World Premiere of ‘The Gravity of Kindness’ – A Christmas Meditation – by Howard Goodall and Handel’s ‘Messiah’, Part 1 + Hallelujah Chorus – and pieces by MacMillan, Weir & Watkins.
The Addison Singers present a brand new composition by the popular and hugely talented Howard Goodall: ‘The Gravity of Kindness’ – a Christmas Meditation for soprano, chorus & chamber orchestra. Commissioned by the Addison Singers in memory of Cathy Bereznicki, and thanks to her generous bequest, this 15-minute piece is a beautiful and moving gem inspired by three pieces of text: the poem ‘Kindness’ by Naomi Shihab Nye, the ‘Coventry Carol’, and a traditional Mexican lullaby.Alongside the new piece, the Oratorio Choir sing Part 1 of ‘Messiah’ in addition to the ever popular ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, whilst the Chamber Choir perform more recent seasonal music by Huw Watkins, James Macmillan and Judith Weir.
