The ever creative and proactive Durban Chamber Choir will be presenting two glorious mid-winter concerts over two weekends in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday, July 21, 2019, and in Durban on July 28, 2019, under the baton of Dr Christopher Cockburn entitled Mass Movement.

The Durban Chamber Choir’s mid-year programme presents three musical responses to the text of the Latin Mass: Tomas Victoria’s Missa O Magnum Mysterium, Mozart’s Missa Brevis in F, and Christopher Cockburn’s Festival Mass No. 3.

The juxtaposition of these settings offers the audience an opportunity not only to hear strongly contrasting musical styles from three different eras, but also to compare three very different approaches to the texts themselves.

There will be two performances over two consecutive Sundays: in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday July 21 at 15h00 at Hayfields Lutheran Church and in Durban on Sunday July 28 at 15h00 at St Thomas Church, Musgrave.

In both cases, tickets R70 (R40 pensioners and children) available at the door:
