Silence and Music

On Saturday 10th October, SUMS was joined by Guest Conductor Anthony Pasquill for a memorable spring evening of choral works that spanned more than five hundred years. Exploring the fascinating connection between silence and music, the concert featured Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G Minor as well as works by a wide variety of other composers, including contemporary works by Paulus, Tavener, Holst, Lauridsen, Tallis, and John Cage’s unique silent composition, 4’33”. Held in the beautiful Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church in Annandale, both choir and audience enjoyed a spectacular repertoire of music that helped us appreciate the ways in which silence and music intertwine.
