Bookended by two great works inspired by the past, London Concord Singers concert From Darkness to Light explores the transition through a diverse selection of music from Tallis to Schumann and Saint-Saens to Charles Wood and Britten. The concert starts with Brahms's great motet Warum ist das Licht gegeben inspired by the motets of Bach, and ends with Bax's Mater ora filium for which Bax took his inspiration from the masses of William Byrd.

The concert also includes contemporary music by John Tavener, Judith Bingham, Ola Gjeilo, and Cecilia McDowell, plus Robert Hugill's arrangement of a carol by Julian Merson.
