choral treats from Gustav and Imogen Holst, Benjamin Britten and Grace Williams

The Chorus is pleased to present a programme of contrasting works by male and female composers in the newly-refurbished Victoria Hall. First, Gustav Holst’s Two Psalms, written in 1912, alongside his daughter Imogen Holst’s Three Psalms, written 21 years later. Both works are for chorus, organ and strings.

Also on the programme are Benjamin Britten’s highly acclaimed and unique cantata Rejoice in the Lamb, composed in 1943 to text taken from Christopher Smart’s poem Jubilate Agno, and Ave Maris Stella, a wonderful piece by Welsh composer Grace Williams, a contemporary of both Britten and Imogen Holst.
