King's College Choir and Britten Sinfonia

2 December 2017 / 19:30

The celebrated choristers of King’s College Choir join Britten Sinfonia in a performance of Bernstein’s exhilarating Chichester Psalms.

Written in 1965, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, with its brass, harps and exquisite solo for boy treble, provides an exhilarating invocation of the composer’s hopes for brotherhood and peace, sentiments mirrored by Vaughan Williams’s impassioned Dona nobis pacem.

The world-renowned King’s College Choir of Cambridge joins Britten Sinfonia for performances of both works, conducted by Stephen Cleobury.  The concert opens with the world premiere of a new work by Emma-Ruth Richards, directed by Britten Sinfonia leader Jacqueline Shave.
