Britain is the home of great Western choral tradition, and this seasonal program of carols – including those by Britten, Walton, and Vaughan – is a testament to this.
Herbert Howells was arguably the greatest influence on British church music in the 20th century. His work, and the feature piece of this concert, A Spotless Rose, has become essential Christmas repertoire around the world. The serene harmony of the work culminates to a magical cadence of pure bliss.
Sung by the polished voices of the Sydney Philharmonia Chamber Singers, this final concert in A Little Lunch Music in 2021 is an essential calendar event to mark the festive season.
