The concert will begin with William Harris’s beautiful setting of Spenser’s poem “Faire is the Heaven” and will include other well-known sacred works such as Stanford’s “Beati Quorum Via”, Tavener’s “The Lamb” and Howells’ “Take him, earth, for cherishing”. In anticipation of St. Cecilia’s Day later in November, the concert will feature Britten’s “Hymn to St. Cecilia”, a setting of a poem by W.H. Auden celebrating the patron saint of musicians. The performance will close with Tippett’s evocative Spirituals (from his secular oratorio “A Child of Our Time”).
