The music in this concert of psalm settings falls broadly into two parts. On the one hand, we present music by non-English composers of the British Isles, headed by the choir’s new patron Sir James MacMillan, and including C.V. Stanford and John Joubert. On the other, we celebrate 400 years of European sacred music from the early mastery of Lassus, Gesualdo and Gabrieli to the utterly individual Francis Poulenc.
