A Farewell from King's
Stephen Cleobury conducts the BBC Singers, the Choir of King's College, Cambridge and Britten Sinfonia in a concert to mark his retirement as the college's director of music.
As he approaches the end of his 37-year tenure as director of music of King's College, Cambridge, Stephen Cleobury conducts a concert to mark his retirement featuring the choirs with which he is associated.
Fittingly, the programme includes Vaughan Williams Serenade to Music alongside John Rutter's orchestration of the Magnificat from Herbert Howells's canticles written for the chapel and choir of King's. At the heart of the concert is Benjamin Britten's St. Nicholas, bringing together the BBC Singers, Choir of King's College, Cambridge and King's Voices.
