Aldeburgh Voices Ben Parry conductor Eo Nomine soloists Walton Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (‘Chichester Service’) Britten Rejoice in the Lamb Finzi Lo, the Full, Final Sacrifice Bernstein Chichester Psalms ‘Bless God in the dance, dance, dance!’ Rejoice in the Lamb is like nothing else in all choral music: a deliriously playful prayer, offered up by a visionary poet in music of irresistible originality and wit.

Walter Hussey. Poetry by Auden – another Hussey commission – frames a vibrant choral showcase for Snape Maltings’ choir.
