Programme

Three significant new works, written for the Merton Choirbook, were premièred at this concert. The Merton Choirbook is perhaps the 21st century's finest single collection of new choral and organ music, and confirms the Choir's place as a major force in the choral landscape. The works premièred were:

Joubert Northumbrian Triptych – Three Settings of Bede
Pott Word
Pott Hymn Fantasias
