Blow Your Trumpets, Angels

A music feast for the ages

"The City of London Choir... freshness, bloom, attentive diction and a palpable heart."

- Daily Telegraph
This concert of two halves uses the glorious combination of brass and voices, the first part taking its tone from the golden age of 16th century Venice, with canticles by the Giovanni Gabrieli and his pupil Heinrich Schütz. The second half comes right up to date with the London premiere of Philip Moore’s At the round earth’s imagined corners, an astonishing 21st century setting of John Donne’s poem in which trumpets sound from the four corners of the ‘earth’ around the building. Latecomers only admitted in suitable breaks between works.
