For a concert of religiously inspired music there are few safer hands than the choir of the Temple Church. Settings of The Lord’s Prayer wrap around a programme that includes James MacMillan’s exquisite Miserere, commissioned and championed by The Sixteen, and highlights from Handel’s most dramatic oratorio Samson.


James MacMillan ranks amongst a trio of truly great composers of sacred
music, the other two being Tomás Luis de Victoria and Francis Poulenc.”
Harry Christophers, Founder and Conductor, The Sixteen
