A significant piece of sacred music from each season will be presented and the programme will include Bach’s great Whitsuntide anthem for double choir Der Geist Hilft, Herbert Howells’ Passiontide motet Take Him, Earth, for Cherishing, Patrick Gowers’ Ascensiontide anthem Viri Galilaei, and music by Palestrina, Taverner, Wesley, Stainer and Sweelinck. The choir will be accompanied by Simon Nieminski, the gifted virtuoso organist from St Mary’s Metropolitan Cathedral in Edinburgh, who will also play organ solos by Bach and Messiaen.
