A feast of exuberant and stirring English music performed by an 80-strong choir and full orchestra. Two choral gems by Vaughan Williams take centre stage: his youthful setting of inspirational and uplifting words by Walt Whitman in Toward The Unknown Region and his rarely-performed work Benedicite. This spirited hymn in praise of creation sets brilliant choral fanfares against exquisitely reflective passages for solo soprano. Finzi’s Magnificat is performed alongside David Bednall’s setting of the Nunc Dimittis, commissioned in 2016 as a companion work. Holst’s intensely moving and mystical Hymn of Jesus completes the programme.
