We return to St Sepulchre to sing as a part of the internationally-renowned Brandenburg Choral Festival.
We have an American theme to the three central pieces of our performance, with Michael Tippett‘s gorgeous Five Negro Spirituals from his Oratorio, A Child of Our Time, Samuel Barber‘s setting of Agnus Dei to his famous Adagio and Stephen Paulus‘ beautiful setting of Della B.
