BBC Singers perform choral work by Bernard Hughes, Cecilia McDowall and others
This concert presents a selection of choral works by the British composer Bernard Hughes alongside a selection of favourite composers he has chosen to complement his music.
Hughes’s music ranges from the wordless ecstasy of Revelation Window to the exciting world premiere of new commission A Ternary of Littles. A sequence of sacred pieces in the second half includes works by Dobrinka Tabakova and Eleanor Alberga, while the secular first half includes a Burns setting by Cecilia McDowall and the exquisite Pavane Fantasia by long-time BBC Singers collaborator Bo Holten.
