Conflict and Collaboration
CELEBRATING 100 YEARS
Cantamus are Voting for Women at their next concert ‘Conflict and Collaboration’. Celebrating beautiful, but regrettably ignored, music from the 17th century to just before WWI.
They will perform ‘Songs of Sunrise’ by the feisty Dame Ethel Smyth, her stirring March of the Women, united with its fellows ‘Laggard Dawn’ and ‘1910’; the ‘Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary’ by an Italian contemporary of Sir Christopher Wren – Isabella Leonarda (1620-1704); and delightful Edwardian miniatures by Amy Beach and Emily Tallmadge.
The concert also features two collaborative works written by Fauré (of ‘Requiem’ fame) and Messager (once famous in the UK for his operettas ‘Monsieur Beaucaire’ and ‘Véronique’) – a Mass for the fishing village of Villerville in Normandy, and a wicked send-up of Wagner’s Ring Cycle as a set of brisk piano-duet Quadrilles.
