Lauridsen – Lux Aeterna
Copland – Quiet City
Paul Carr – Air for Chamber Orchestra (first performance)

The Chichester Psalms contain some of Bernstein’s liveliest and most heartfelt music. The eclectic mix of jazzy and religious idioms really stimulate!

Lux Aeterna is one of the most beautiful things ever written for choir – hauntingly lovely, very much of the moment in its spiritual values.
