A Celebration of English Choral Music

For its summer concert, KCS offers a delicious selection of English music. We perform superb anthems by Elgar, Wood, Balfour Gardiner and Jonathan Dove alongside Parry’s I was glad (chosen in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee) before moving into the secular realm with Cecilia McDowall’s exuberant A Fancy of Folksongs and the delightful cycle And since to look at things in bloom, a 2013 commission by KCS from our former Musical Director Graham Ross. This cycle of five songs celebrates the beauties of nature, setting words by Wilbye, Ben Jonson, Tennyson, Constable and AE Housman.

Balfour Gardiner: Te Lucis
Elgar: The Spirit of Lord
Wood: O Thou the Central Orb
Dove: Seek him
Parry: I was Glad
Graham Ross: And since to look at things in bloom
