Emma Ruth Richards: new work (William Alwyn Foundation commission, first performance)
Bernstein: Chichester Psalms
Vaughan Williams: Dona nobis pacem

Written in 1965, Bernsteinís Chichester Psalms, with its brass, harps and exquisite solo for boy treble, provides an exhilarating invocation of the composerís hopes for brotherhood and peace, sentiments mirrored by Vaughan Williams impassioned Dona nobis pacem. The world-renowned Kingís 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.
