Bruckner Te Deum
Mendelssohn Lobgesang

"All that has breath, praise the Lord!" We continue our trio of Mendelssohn's cantatas with his answer to the choral symphony: a majestic expression of joy in mankind's progression from darkness to enlightenment. One of Mendelssohn's most popular works within his own lifetime but now rarely performed, the piece bursts with jubilant melodies and rich harmonies. Bruckner's mighty Te Deum, a piece which the composer called "the pride of his life", opens with the choir singing in blazing unison.

Booking opens in April
