About the event

In an excitingly varied programme of music for choir and organ, spanning some 400 years, we mark the anniversaries of several composers – the 200th of Bruckner’s birth; the 150th of the births of Bairstow and Holst and the centenaries of the deaths of Stanford and Dubois. Works by five of the greatest Baroque composers – Purcell, Rameau, Bach, Handel and Vivaldi – form the backbone of the concert, and Romantic works by Brahms and  Bainton bring us to the present century for a wistful arrangement of a folk tune by the American, Stephen Paulus.
