An evening of devotional a cappella music with the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star Christ Natural Choir and sacred and secular a cappella music spanning six centuries with Witchert Chorale. BCSCNC perform some of their unique songs, two of which have been composed by tonight's conductors. As seen on the BBC's 2016 'Choir of the Year' competition and ITV's 'Britain's Got Talent', this is sure to be a polished performance of the highest quality. After the interval, Buckinghamshire-based Witchert Chorale present sacred music by Bruckner, Byrd, Stanford and Tavener to name a few, and secular reflective music including Ola Gjeilo's remarkable Northern Lights and Arthur Sullivan's beautiful The Long Day Closes, before finishing with a jazzy Gershwin number and a Russian folk song.
Join these fantastic two choirs for this varied programme in the lovely surroundings of St Paul's Covent Garden.
