NEXT THREE CHOIRS FESTIVAL: HEREFORD 28 JULY- 4 AUGUST 2018  

Tenebrae

Hereford Cathedral

Elgar They are at rest 3'
Tavener Song for Athene 6'

Torsten Rasch A Foreign Field Psalm (premiere) 5'
Judith Bingham A Walk with Ivor Gurney 8'
Howells Take Him, Earth, for Cherishing 8'

This programme marks a gentle reflection on the final year of the World War I centenary, telling a story of loss and an earnest wish for peace. Including many composers with strong connections to the Three Choirs Festival, and the premiere of a psalm originally intended for Torsten Rasch's 2014 piece A Foreign Field, commissioned to mark the start of the centenary, this is sure to be a moving commemoration from one of the UK's most exhilaratingly refined vocal ensembles.
