Our Tune
Paul Spicer, Festival Director said: “Dvorak’s Stabat Mater has a monumental structure and is a major work of the Romantic period. It was conceived out of pure grief at the loss of his daughter Josefa. Dvorak little thought that by the time the work was completed he would have lost three children. The work comes from the very depths of Dvorak’s heart and it communicates very strongly both through the beauty of its language and lyricism. The combined choir, to which we were delighted to welcome the Midhurst Musical Society, has worked hard and shown commitment”.
Midhurst Music Society performed Dvorak’s Stabat Mater  at the Petersfield Musical Festival as part of a hundred plus mixed choir on Saturday 25th March. The concert had been rehearsed by Festival Conductor, Paul Spicer over several months and offered an exciting opportunity for small classical choral societies to enjoy singing a major choral concert accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. Mary Knight, MMS’ Director of Music said: I am really proud of the way our members have worked so hard to learn this music. We were looking forward to the performance when we would join the soloists and orchestra. It was an exciting experience for our choir.
