A Hymn of Heavenly Beauty

USA Tour 2022

This program celebrates some of the finest choral works from the Renaissance through the present day, ranging from the haunting Allegri ‘Miserere mei, Deus’, to Holst’s resplendent setting of ‘Nunc Dimittis’. Featuring a number of familiar favourites, these works showcase the rich dark sound-world of Bruckner, the prayerful intimacy of contemporary English masters and the soaring contrapuntal lines of the late Renaissance. Closing with Harris’ spectacular ‘Faire is the Heaven’, this program is a true homage to choral greats past and present.
