Event Details

Sun Music is a celebration of light. It begins with the bright Australian dawn in Nigel Butterley’s joyfully exuberant Morning Fanfare and Clare Maclean’s We Welcome Summer. A spectrum of light, shade and tonal colours is shown in three contrasting movements from Scottish composer James MacMillan’s Strathclyde Motets. The program concludes with a masterwork of the twentieth century, the Requiem of Maurice Duruflé. This is a mass for the departed but also one for the living – offering a vision of an eternal light. This is a concert suffused with warmth and hope for an injured world.
