The a cappella programme spans the centuries, from the famous "Crucifixus a 8" by Antonio Lotti, to James MacMillan’s "Miserere", his own powerful interpretation of the text made famous by Allegri, which has already been acknowledged as a modern masterpiece. Motets by Victoria, Bruckner and Pablo Casals provide additional variety and the first half concludes with René Clausen’s thrilling arrangement of Sheppard’s "In Pace". The second half conjures a distinctively eastern-european sound-world, with extracts from Alexander Gretchaninov’s "Passion Week", a choral work rarely heard in this country although a monumental standard in the Russian Orthodox Chuch’s celebration of Easter.
Cellist, Hilary Boxer, will provide moments of reflection between the choral items with works for solo cello by Bach, Vivaldi and Albinoni, accompanied by Andrew Daldorph on chamber organ.

Director : Andrew Daldorph

Tickets are also available from the Abbey Book Shop, or (subject to availability) on the door.
