  1. Missa Brevis - Leonard Bernstein
  2. Chichester Psalms - Leonard Bernstein, arranged by the composer for organ, harp and percussion
  3. Choral suite from West Side Story - Leonard Bernstein, arranged by Mac Huff

Bernstein’s versatility as a composer is brilliantly illustrated in this concert to celebrate the centenary of his birth.

The Chichester Psalms include an exuberant setting of ‘O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands’ (Psalm 100) and a gentle Psalm 23, ‘The Lord is my shepherd’, as well as menacing music cut from the score of West Side Story.

The vibrant Missa Brevis was developed from the incidental music in medieval style that Bernstein had composed for The Lark, Anouilh’s play about Joan of Arc. Favourite numbers from West Side Story round off the concert.
