Hymns to the Virgin

Following the choir’s tour to Poland in early July, we round off the season with a repeat performance of a concert of music dedicated to the Virgin Mary given in Krakow.

Composers from the Renaissance to the 21st Century are represented. Among the works will be the beautiful motet Ave Virgo Sanctissima by the Spanish composer Guerrero; Byrd’s glorious eight-part Magnificat; settings of words from the Eastern Orthodox Liturgy by both Tchaikovsky and Tavener; a small-scale Hymn to the Virgin composed by Britten while still a schoolboy, and Totus Tuus, which the Polish composer Gorecki wrote for a visit of Pope John Paul II to his homeland in 1987.

These choral items will be interspersed by organ works in honour of the Virgin by J.S. Bach and the French composers Boëllmann, Langlais and Dupré.
