Directed by Andrew Griffiths, Londinium is one of London's most versatile chamber choirs, acclaimed for its distinctive programming and vibrant performances of a cappella repertoire from the Renaissance to the present day.
Friday 23rd October, 7.30pm at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate
Londinium opens its tenth-anniversary season by marking 150 years since the births of two great Nordic composers, Jean Sibelius and Carl Nielsen. Although known primarily for their symphonies, both wrote beautiful and characterful choral music; our selection includes Sibelius' haunting Rakastava (The Lover) and Nielsen's intense Tre Motetter. Alongside these works we perform ravishing music by Peter Lange-Müller, Wilhelm Stenhammar and Toivo Kuula - composers hardly known to UK audiences - before concluding our programme with the classic Lorca Suite by Einojuhani Rautavaara.
