Stanford Celebration – Choral Concert

The combined choirs of Salisbury Cathedral and St Matthew’s Church, Westminster, sing at the Spire Crossing and West End respectively, performing a wide-ranging programme of work by Stanford and his illustrious students.

Highlights include three of Stanford’s Bible songs – A song of Trust ‘I will lift mine eyes’, A Song of Peace and A Song of Wisdom – and his Three Latin Motets – Justorum animæ (trans. The souls of the righteous), Cœlos ascendit hodie (trans. Christ is ascended on high today) and Beati quorum via (trans. Blessed are those that are undefiled), plus Vaughan Williams’ Lord, Thou hast been our refuge, Holst’s Nunc Dimittis, Stanford’s Latin Magnificat and the ‘Collegium Regale’ Te Deum by Herbert Howells.

This event is part of our Stanford Festival, a week-long celebration of the music and legacy of Sir Charles Villiers Stanford.
