Welcome to Luminosa
Outstanding Choirs For All Ages
Sergei Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil is a haunting cornerstone of the choral repertoire, and an overwhelming listening experience. Alton-based choir, Luminosa, is delighted to be performing this work, along with Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, and Michael Higgins’ O Salutaris Hostia at All Saints Church, Odiham on Saturday March 25th at 7pm.
The All-Night Vigil is an incredible work, and arguably Rachmaninov’s finest achievement, written within two weeks during the First World War in early 1915.
The concert will also feature Luminosa Chamber Voices who will perform Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna. Written in 1997 following the death of his mother, this beautiful work explores music’s power to preserve and remember, and the depth of human capacity to love.
Michael Higgins will provide sensitive, atmospheric piano accompaniment. Luminosa is also honoured to be performing his exquisite O Salutaris Hostia (an arrangement of Elgar’s Nimrod) which he composed during the Covid lockdown.
Conducted by their dynamic artistic director, Rebekah Abbott, Luminosa will perform this exceptional music with the textual variety and sustained luxuriance of sound for which Luminosa is now well known. There will be also a surprise addition to the concert experience which will enhance the evening’s message of hope and light.
If you love choral music and appreciate compositions that lift you from the mundane, you should not miss Luminosa’s spring concert at the beautiful All Saints Church, Odiham on Saturday March 25th at 7pm.
