Ely Choral Society Presents African Sanctus
Ely Choral Society with Ely Youth Choir
April 4th at 7.30
Conducted by Andrew Parnell
Soprano – Tara Bungard
Piano – Charlie Penn
Prepare to be blown away with David Fanshawe’s ground-breaking African Sanctus which combines traditional African music with his own ‘western music’.
Supported by his recordings of native music collected in Africa in 1969, Fanshawe combines his setting of the Latin Mass with ground-shaking percussion and the rock rhythms and electric instruments of the BackBeat Percussion ensemble.
Sung in the magnificent setting of Ely Cathedral Nave, this concert may need a health warning!
