About This Event

The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin take the Proms to the ‘Musicians’ Church’, Holy Sepulchre London (aka St Sepulchure-without-Newgate), where Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood first learnt the organ and was later laid to rest.

This varied conspectus of 20th-century English choral music opens with the setting of lines by the then Poet Laureate, John Masefield, that Walton composed for the unveiling of the church’s Henry Wood memorial window in 1946, and is brought up to date with a new commission by Joanna Lee, At this man’s hand, setting the verse by Masefield that is inscribed on the window itself.

There will be no interval

Approx. end time: 16:30

Tickets for this event will be available from 9.00am on Friday 14 June
