St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna
Masterpieces of English Choir Music
On the occasion of the 150th birthday of Ralph Vaughan Williams, St. Stephen’s Cathedral Vienna for the first time invites a renowned choir director from the UK, David Wordsworth, to conduct a Sing Along Concert. Besides the music of RVW, you will work on music also composed in the UK, like Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Elgar’s Te Deum and Ireland’s Great Love Hath No Man. By the way, these composers have anniversaries in 2022 as well: the 60th anniversary of John Ireland’s death and Edward Elgar’s 165th birthday.
Under the direction of David Wordsworth, you will study the pieces over several days in rehearsals. As a crowning finale, you will perform them in St. Stephen’s Cathedral as a sing-along concert in front of a broad audience with the many other singers from all over the world, the Vienna Cathedral Organist and a renowned soloist.
