Londinium, chamber choir

Andrew Griffiths, conductor

 

Londinium's festive programme brings together the very best of choral music from the Renaissance and the present day. Recent works by some of Britain's finest choral composers - Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Matthew Martin, Gabriel Jackson, John McCabe, Cecilia McDowall,  and Francis Pott - are heard alongside seasonal music by Byrd, Dering, Lassus, Palestrina, Praetorius, and Sweelinck. Completing this rich tapestry are rarities by Kenneth Leighton, and two modern classics: Giles Swayne's visceral Magnificat I and Morten Lauridsen's luscious O Magnum Mysterium.

 

Wine and mince pies will be served!
