Programme Note

In a welcome return to public performance, the Temple Church Choristers showcase their exceptional talent and enchanting sound. Interspersed with exciting and popular organ repertoire, the programme features much-loved and well-known music for sacred choir alongside a new work written especially for the Temple Church Choir.

The performance will be recorded for live broadcast by BBC Radio 3.  We ask anyone attending the concert to be in their seats by 7.25pm as it may not be possible to admit latecomers.
