"Music we like to sing"

Hawke's Bay Linden Singers and The Waiapu Cathedral Choir

On Sunday March 14th a very special concert at the Waiapu Cathedral in Napier will celebrate some important milestones in the musical life of Hawke’s Bay resident Basil Brooker, and his choir the Linden Singers.
This year marks nearly 70 years since Basil first started singing in choirs, 50 years since the Linden Singers was formed, 40 years since Basil’s long association with the Waiapu Cathedral Choir first began, and his 80th birthday – no wonder he is keen to celebrate!
The Linden Singers and the Cathedral Choir will join together to perform "Music we like to Sing"  in honour of Basil’s unique contributions to the musical heritage of both groups.
Basil’s career as a chorister began in 1952 at St. Mary’s Anglican Church in Karori with his first experience of running a choir coming at the age of 21 he became organiser for a large annual Carol concert at the Wellington Town Hall.
Responsibility for more than 250 singers and all the required printing, finances and advertising for these concerts meant that when he moved to the Hawke’s Bay and started his own choir, the organisational aspects of running choirs and concerts held no fears.
He and his wife Diana formed the Hastings Madrigal Singers in 1971, and in 1979 the choir  was renamed the Linden Singers.
The reunion concert programme, bought together by Basil and                    Anthony Tattersall includes madrigals and part-songs, works by local composers and several much-loved choral anthems including Sir John Stainer’s I Saw the Lord - and the first half will finish with Handel’s mighty Hallelujah Chorus.
Charles Wood’s Hail, gladdening light and I was Glad, by Sir Hubert Parry, are two traditional favourites which require a large choir.
Two new works composed by Hawke’s Bay locals, If Music be the Food of Love, by Elizabeth Curtis and Coda by Stephen Lange, will also be premiered.
Both were commissioned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the choir.
The celebration weekend starts with an afternoon tea on the Saturday which former members of the Linden Singers are invited to attend; to register for this event they may contact Ross Corbett   phone at 06 8435537

Crucifixus - Music for Lent and Easter

Our first concert is held during the season of Lent so it will not be a surprise to learn that much of the music in the programme is for Lent and Passiontide. We have three pairings O Quam Gloriosum (Byrd and Victoria); Ave Maria (Parsons and Victoria) and Justorum Animae (Stanford and Byrd), we find it fascinating to see how different composers set identical words. Our Easter choices stray as far as Ascensiontide and create a cheerful end to the programme.

We will include some entertaining instrumental music which will offer contrast of timbre and mood.
