Ella returns home to Sheffield to perform as a soloist in Augusta Holmès’ La Vision de la Reine with mezzo soprano Anna Huntley, alongside The Abbeydale Singers conducted by Lucy Joy Morris, members of Ensemble 360 and organist Darius Battiwalla.

FAURÉ / MESSAGER Messe des Pêcheurs de Villerville (18′)
FAURÉ Cantique de Jean Racine (6′)
FRANCK Prelude, Fugue and Variation for solo organ (15′)
HOLMÈS La vision de la reine (25’) 

An afternoon of glorious choral music. 

The Abbeydale Singers perform Cantique de Jean Racine, one of Gabriel Fauré’s most popular works, loved for its beautifully restrained nature and gorgeous harmonies. They are joined by Ensemble 360 for Fauré’s Mass, rarely performed in its entirety, composed in collaboration with his lifelong friend, André  Messager, in honour of fishermen from the tiny Normandy village of Villerville.  

Organist Darius Battiwalla plays César Franck’s mesmerising Prelude, Fugue and Variation before singers Anna Huntley and Ella Taylor, rising stars of the opera and concert stage, join Ensemble 360 and Abbeydale Singers for the shimmering sounds of the Queen’s Vision by the Irish-French composer Augusta Holmès.
