Music for Galway & Galway 2020 present Abendmusik: Journey of the Spirit
SoundScapes Re-Imagined opens with Abendmusik which introduces a new series of vocal music to Galway. The first of five Abendmusik live-stream concerts takes place on Sunday 25 October 2020 at 5pm, in St. Nicholas Collegiate Church in Galway city centre.
Entitled Journey of the Spirit, the concert features baritone Gyula Nagy with pianist Finghin Collins, and the Resurgam Choir under director Mark Duley. The music includes Brahms Four Serious Songs, and J.S. Bach Komm Jesu komm.
A special feature of the concert will be a choral improvisation entitled Through a glass, darkly. For this, Resurgam will put its scores aside and travel off-piste for a moment, to explore these resonant words of St Paul in the freshest and most immediate way possible – an improvised short motet where the singers individually throw out ideas, and collectively respond. Anything could happen!
