Week Two: 20th - 24th July

The Splendour Of Church Anthems

& Quanta Qualia

 

Ben England will teach Handel’s wonderful “Zadok The Priest”, Parry’s uplifting “I was Glad”, Stanford’s hauntingly beautiful “Bluebird”, Grieg’s melodic “Ave Maris Stella” and our special guest presenter Patrick Hawes will introduce his own composition “Quanta Qualia” which has often been in the ClassicFM Hall of Fame.

The original version for solo soprano and SATB choir appeared on Patrick’s debut album Blue in Blue in 2004. It was subsequently recorded by Hayley Westenra for her Number-One-selling album Odyssey and, in 2014, Patrick was approached by the brilliant Voces8 choir to produce a version for them and alto saxophone which featured on their Number-One-selling album Eventide.

The words are written by Patrick’s brother, the poet and librettist Andrew Hawes.  They express a heartfelt longing for the joys of heaven - a happiness to be shared in a future moment of meeting.  The ecstasy of this moment of meeting is underlined by the repetition of key words ‘mane’, ‘gaudia’ and ‘conventus’ deepening the intensity of the yearning for bliss. During the current pandemic when we are all isolated from friends and loved ones, the words take on an added poignancy: “O how great and how wonderful the joys of meeting will be”.
