Programme Note

In the first part of this concert, presented at the end of the year marking the centenary of women's suffrage in both the UK and Austria, Whitehall Choir will present beautiful and thrilling music by women, some of which is rarely performed and has never been recorded. 

In 2016 the choir enjoyed a highly successful tour to Vienna and performed alongside Cantus Novus Wien. We are delighted to welcome them to London to sing wonderful sacred music from the German and Austrian canon: Bruckner, Brahms, Alma Mahler and Berta Aichinger.   Finally, the two groups will form a combined choir in Roxanna Panufnik's atmospheric Westminster Mass and Paul Spicer's 'Glory be to God for dappled thingsʼ: a welcome repeat of the piece we sang together two years ago.
