Programme Note

As Easter approaches, Londinium embarks on a musical journey through Holy Week. Beginning with the acclamation of the crowds on Palm Sunday, our programme leads us to the Last Supper, the arrest at Gethsemane, the Crucifixion itself, and finally to the empty tomb and risen Christ on Easter morning. Our sumptuous selection of repertoire includes some of the greatest composers of the Renaissance (amongst them Taverner, Lassus and Lhéritier), works by the German Romantics and from the Russian Orthodox tradition, and English music by Herbert Howells, Charles Wood, Jim Clements and Giles Swayne. At the heart of our programme is one of the finest new choral works of our time: James MacMillan's profoundly moving setting of the Miserere.
