Programme Note

Chamber choir Londinium's thrillingly eclectic spring programme celebrates the power of love. We sing fine settings of the biblical Song of Songs by Victoria, Palestrina, Guerrero, and John Sanders, tell of divine love in Kerensa Briggs' Ubi caritas, and explore earthly delights and sorrows in music by Finzi, Lassus, Pearsall, Clara Schumann, and Skempton. Uniting these themes are large-scale works by Bernard Hughes, whose warm-hearted I Sing of Love brings together biblical texts with verses by Rumi, and Francis Pott, whose breathtaking Amore Langueo clothes a medieval text in heady layers of musical ecstasy.

Tickets include a complimentary programme, and wine will be served in the interval.

Londinium: Arise, my love
