Britten Sinfonia & Choir of King’s College, Cambridge: Chichester Psalms

Britten Sinfonia & Choir of King’s College, Cambridge: Chichester Psalms

Presented by Saffron Hall

The Kings College Choir

Written in 1965, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, with its brass, harps and exquisite solo for boy treble, provides an exhilarating invocation of the composer’s hopes for brotherhood and peace, sentiments mirrored by Vaughan Williams impassioned Dona Nobis Pacem. The world-renowned Choir of King’s College, Cambridge joins Britten Sinfonia for performances of both works, conducted by Stephen Cleobury. The concert opens with a new work by Emma-Ruth Richards, directed by Britten Sinfonia leader Jacqueline Shave.

6.30pm: pre-concert talk – Emma-Ruth Richards discusses her new work (free to ticket holders)

This concert is due to finish at approximately 9.15pm
