The Parliament Choir’s April concert juxtaposes music from England and France in a programme to enthral and inspire.

Poulenc’s exuberant yet profound setting of the Gloria is performed alongside Gounod’s first major work, his Messe Solenelle, for the patron saint of music, St Cecilia. The English side of the Channel is represented by Herbert Howells’ exquisite coronation anthem Behold, O God Our Defender, and the Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus by Ralph Vaughan Williams, based on native folk tunes.

The concert also features a new setting of Tu es Petrus by the Parliament Choir’s Composer-in-Residence, Nicholas O’Neill, drawing on ideas from the composers of Notre Dame more than 800 years ago.
