Londinium closed its tenth-anniversary season with a delicious selection of music celebrating the great outdoors. Beautiful partsongs by Elgar, Delius, Vaughan Williams, Ireland and Sterndale Bennett rubbed shoulders with superb recent works by Nicholas Maw, Cecilia McDowall, Bernard Rose and James MacMillan. Mendelssohn's vivacious op.59 'Songs to be sung in the open air' and Britten's classic Five Flower Songs completed this delightful programme.

In the video we sing extracts from Rose's The spacious firmament on high, MacMillan's The Gallant Weaver and Elgar's The Shower. The latter two are included in our programme 'Perspectives Anglaises', to be performed in Alsace, France in August.
