The BBC Singers are a wonderful group of musicians, who can tackle anything from the dawn of early music to music of the present day, and this concert was no exception to that. I would certainly like to hear these pieces, performed by the same forces, again.I agree with Rosemary that it would have been better if we had the usual programme containing the original words (with the Hebrew in a roman transliteration) and translations for this concert.

The music - both pieces new to me - was inspiring and very moving. However, my enjoyment would have been greatly enhanced if we could have had a transcript of the words sung - I presume - in Hebrew and in Italian. I appreciate the Zeisl Requiem Ebraico is taken from Psalm 92 but was it being sung as written in the bible? In the Malipiero I presume the words were Saint Francis' own sayings but ... which ones? We have had transcripts at BBC Singers' concerts before and I wondered why not this time? The venue is marvellous, by the way, and even better accoustically since the refurbishment.
