Prompted by the centenary of the death of Charles Villiers Stanford, and the 150th anniversary of the birth of his student Gustav Holst, Londinium offers a stunning selection of British choral music from the early years of the twentieth century. Anchoring our programme are spectacular double-choir works by Stanford - his Milton setting On Time, and his virtuosic Latin Magnificat - and Holst's visionary The Evening Watch, on a text by Henry Vaughan. Alongside them we perform a highly varied sequence of works by students of both composers, including Vaughan Williams, Howells, Bainton, Coleridge-Taylor, Gurney and Rubbra. We also present music by earlier composers whom Stanford and Holst admired, and contemporary re-imaginings of some of Stanford's most beloved works by Judith Bingham and Janet Wheeler.

Tickets include a complimentary programme, and wine will be served in the interval.
