As part of the worldwide #BernsteinAt100 celebrations, Oxford Pro Musica Singers are performing his iconic Chichester Psalms in the glorious setting of Exeter College Chapel. It is a tuneful, tonal and contemporary piece featuring modal melodies and unusual meters and is a firm favourite amongst choirs and audiences alike.

The programme is completed by the very best American Choral music with works by Aaron Copland, Randall Thompson and Morten Lauridsen. We also feature three works by the ever-popular Eric Whitacre: the achingly beautiful 'When David heard', the wonderfully exciting and programmatic 'Leonardo dreams of his flying machine', and 'Sleep'.
