Musica Baltica / Edition Peters

After her stunning debut at our last summer school, we welcome back Katie Thomas to direct our second week choral course.


This year, her programme is centred around music about the stars and the sea. Bach’s exquisite cantata ‘How bright and fair the morning star’ is placed alongside three settings of the fourteenth century vesper hymn, ‘Ave Maris Stella’ and the radiantly beautiful ‘Stars’ of Eriks Ešenvalds. Juxtaposed are the “sublime and celebratory” Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage by Beethoven, Vaughan Williams’ magnificent Sea Symphony and the wonderful setting by Rani Arbo of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem, ‘Crossing the Bar’. A concert with orchestral accompaniment will be given at the end of the week.


An altogether truly uplifting and enthralling chorister feast. Not to be missed!
