Summer 2023 Concert

Sunday, 28th May at 8pm
Holy Redeemer Church, Bray

Tickets can be purchased HERE or at the door.

Musical Director Frank Kelly invites you to a marvellous night of international sounds and spirit as Bray Choral Society performs, Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo.

Jubilate Deo brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences.

Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language. Movements include liturgical Latin, intertwined Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish, Song of the Earth (untexted), and a closing movement combining several of these languages with English. The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate!”

Bray Choral Society will be joined by the Degani Orchestra, lead by Alan Smale, and soloists Lauren McCann (soprano) and Anna Helena Machlachlan (mezzo-soprano).
