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. There are three new works by David Power, David Lancaster and Tom Armstrong, as well as 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!
