RSCM Music Sunday premičre
13th June 2010
 

  

On 13 June over one hundred and fifty people gathered for Choral Matins for Mayoral and Charity Sunday, which coincided with the Royal School of Church Music’s “Music Sunday”. Councillor Marianne Taylor was formally welcomed as our new Mayor (having been “unofficially” present at our Oak Apple Day celebrations) and a collection taken for this year’s Mayoral Charities. The Choir of twenty-two Girls and sixteen Men gave the first performance of Gordon’s Lawson’s “Jubilate Deo”, which had been especially composed for the occasion as a companion to his earlier “Te Deum laudamus”, which the choir also sang. These demanding pieces were ably accompanied by Roger Palmer, one of our Assistant Organists who also performed Sir Edward Elgar’s Organ Sonata No. 2 before the service. The service concluded with another first performance, of Mr Lawson’s invigorating “Rhapsody for Organ”, dedicated to

our Director of Music, and we were delighted that Mr Lawson was able to travel from his home in Spain to hear it. The “Jubilate Deo” is unusual in that it is a predominantly gentle setting and it features an accompanimental figure which allies it with the earlier Te Deum.

The Choir of Girls and Men will be recording the “Jubilate Deo” on their forthcoming CD featuring works written for our choirs, and his setting of “The Ashwell Carol” will be recorded by the Northampton Bach Choir on their forthcoming CD featuring carols written by Northamptonshire composers, and works written for them. Both discs are being recorded at the beginning of July, and will be directed by our own Director of Music, who is also the Musical Director of the Bach Choir. Former Organ Scholar Richard Pinel, now Assistant Organist at St George’s Chapel, Windsor will accompany the All Saints recording and former Director of Music at All Saints, Ian Clarke, will accompany the Bach Choir recording.
 

   

Gordon Lawson was born in Lenzie, near Glasgow, and was educated at Rydal School, Colwyn Bay, and St John’s College, Cambridge. He was Director of Music at Brighton College for many years and since retiring he has lived in Spain where he continues to compose, conduct and perform. In 2002 two CDs of his choral music were recorded by the Manchester based choir Canzonetta and other CDs include his oboe concerto and a number of works for string orchestra including “Lament for Lockerbie” and “Divertimento”. At today’s first performance he was reacquainted with our

Director of Music, who he examined in 1996 on one of many ABRSM tours.
