Vivace Chorus Presents

African Sanctus

G Live, Guildford

Sat 14 March 2020

Vivace Chorus Presents African Sanctus

David Fanshawe’s glorious African Sanctus has been performed around the world.  An unorthodox setting of the Latin Mass, it blends beautiful choral writing with unique and rare recordings of traditional African music collected by the composer himself on legendary journeys taken on the River Nile between 1969 and 1973.

This recorded music is woven into the live performance which also includes large chorus, percussion ensemble and instrumentalists. For this performance Vivace Chorus will be joined by the dancers of the Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company, and the world-renowned percussion group BackBeat Percussion Quartet.

This piece is more than a performance – it’s an immersive event that puts you right in the heart of Africa, its tradition, its music and its magic.

There will be a free pre-concert talk given by Jane Fanshawe at 6.30pm in the main auditorium.
