London Concord Singers look forward to the Nativity with two contrasting settings of O Magnum Mysterium by Palestrina and the 20th-century French composer Pierre Villette. We also celebrate William Byrd with a performance of his Mass for Four Voices, written in the 1590s for use at clandestine Mass celebrations in recusant households. The programme is completed with 16th century composer Antoine Brumel's gloriously celebratory Laudate Dominum, originally written for the Sistine Chapel.
Our Christmas concert is dedicated to the memory of Stephen Finch, our friend, tenor and choir archivist, who sang with us for many years and is sorely missed.
