Victoria with a Twist, Brighton
March 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On March 10th Brighton Consort (director James Dixon) will present a programme in Brighton entitled “Victoria with a Twist”.
The concert will feature several glorious choral works from the late 16th century, including the much loved Requiem by the Spanish composer Tomas Luis de Victoria (1548-1611).
Although mainly known as an “early music choir” Brighton Consort will also be including a UK first performance of three pieces based on the music of Victoria by the contemporary Australian composer Joseph Twist. His work crosses genres ranging from ancient vocal music, opera and contemporary orchestral music to jazz, cabaret and film music. Now based in California, Joe Twist has written for several artists and television shows including Missy Higgins, Guy Sebastian, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Idea of North, Chanticleer and The Wiggles. In 2011 Joe wrote his Victoria Triptych for the 400th anniversary of Victoria’s death and the work was performed by the Consort of Melbourne, St James’ King Street Sydney Choir and St Mary’s Cathedral Sydney Choir in that year.
Brighton Consort’s concert will take place in St Paul’s Church, West St. on Sunday March 10th at 6.00pm. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.brightonconsort.org.uk/, or by ringing 01273 833746, or on the door.
