All the Powers of Creation - Music of Natural Forces
Friday 22nd November 2019, 8pm - St Michael at the North Gate, Oxford
The breath of the wind; the breaking of dawn; the terror of the earthquake. Throughout history, composers have been fascinated by the natural forces beyond our control that shape our lives.
From Antoine Brumel's seismic "Earthquake" Mass and Orlando di Lasso's "Aurora Lucis Rutilat", to Lili Boulanger's full-throated "Hymne au Soleil" and Eric Whitacre's ecstatic "Cloudburst", join us as we explore some of the most dramatic large-scale consort works ever composed.
