Temple Church's world-renowned choir and magnificent organ join forces in a programme of choral classics of the 20th century. The concert concludes with Five Mystical Songs, Vaughan Williams' rapturous settings of poems by George Herbert - at the centre of which is one of the most sublime moments in all Vaughan Williams!  The rush hour performance also features works by Herbert Howells, a great exponent of the English choral tradition, including Te Deum, the first of his settings for King's College Cambridge.  Other glories of the Anglican repertoire on the programme include Parry's Coronation anthem, I was glad.

This concert is generously supported by the Honourable Societies of the Inner and Middle Temple
