Ayr Choral's October concert titled 'Into the Light' is a musical exploration of the themes of Darkness and Light, night and day. The programme features a range of reflective, serene and joyous Choral music from Europe and America, and across the centuries.
This includes Faure's familiar and much loved 'Requiem', 'O Nata Lux' by Tallis, Rameau's 'La Nuit' which was made famous by the film Les Choristes, and Jonathan Dove's powerful 'Seek Him that Maketh the Seven Stars'.
The concert moves to a joyful conclusion with 'Lux Aeterna', an uplifting vision of eternal light, set to the famous music of Nimrod from Edward Elgar's 'Enigma Variations', and finally James MacMillan's celebratory 'O Radiant Dawn'.
The concert is conducted by Ayr Choral's Musical Director Andrew McTaggart, with soloists Charlie Drummond, Soprano, and Arthur Bruce, Baritone.
