'O for the wings of a dove' brings together many of the most famous and
iconic choral masterpieces from Western Europe. From the thrilling top
notes of Allegri's Miserere and its austere chanting the programme moves
from the Italian Renaissance to classics from the German and French
Romantic repertoires, including Mendelssohn's 'Hear my prayer' with its
soaring soprano solo 'O for the wings of a dove'. The programme
concludes in England with some of the most-loved choral works from the
last century, notably Britten's Festival Cantata 'Rejoice in the Lamb'.
This colourful and jubilant work sets a poem by Christopher Smart that
takes its inspiration from unusual sources such as the poet's pet cat
(and a mouse!) and the mysterious beauty of flowers.
