More than seven centuries of choral writing will feature in a special concert given by the English Chamber Choir at the Temple Church in the Inns of Court, to mark this year’s centenary of the 1918 Armistice.
Music by Ockeghem, Howells, Parry, Stanford, Arvo Pärt, James MacMillan and Will Todd will be interwoven between movements of the Requiem mass as set by nine composers, including the much-loved works by Mozart, Fauré and Duruflé.
At the core of the programme is Holst’s rarely performed Ode to Death, his 1919 commemoration of the war dead, in a new arrangement for choir and organ by Iain Farrington.
Soprano Elizabeth Weisberg appears as guest soloist in works by Brahms and Lili Boulanger. William Vann conducts, with Rebecca Taylor at the organ.
