A fascinating programme of choral music where a contemporary work is paired with an earlier piece based on words from the same poet or source. For example, Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Rachmaninoff’s settings of All Night Vigil, James MacMillan and Granville Bantock’s settings of Burns, and Thea Musgrave’s and Benjamin Britten’s settings of words by Herrick. Included is a motet by Ivor Gurney which was only published in 2017, 92 years after it was composed. And Judith Weir provides a brief opportunity for audience participation!
