Alongside such masterpieces as Hubert Parry Songs of Farewell and Gerald Finzi three anthems Welcome Sweet and Sacred Feast Op.27, we run the historical gamut of metaphysical musings, including early settings of Elizabethan Madrigalists, and a superb selection of contemporary works by William Harris, Judith Weir, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, Richard Rodney Bennett, Jonathan Dove and Lloyd Pfautsch.
All interspersed with solo selections from Benjamin Britten’s stark concentration camp inspired settings of The Holy Sonnets of John Donne Op.35 and Ralph Vaughan Williams Songs of Travel.
