Londinium (chamber choir)
Andrew Griffiths (conductor)
Inspired by the final words of Vaughan Williams' late masterpiece Silence and Music - "and music wakes from silence, where it slept" - Londinium returns to regular concert-giving by celebrating the power of music to sustain, heal, unite and uplift. Our programme looks to the future with hope, but also allows space to reflect on the events of the past eighteen months. Highlights include the UK premiere of Kerensa Briggs' Hear my Prayer, recent works by Bernard Hughes and Richard Allain, and unfairly neglected music by Kodaly, Rebecca Clarke and Kenneth Leighton. These are heard alongside superb Renaissance madrigals and motets by Tomkins, Lobo, Byrd, Gibbons and Sweelinck, and the luscious Romantic sounds of Rheinberger and William Harris.
