      Bob Chilcott and Ralph Vaughan Williams

      Lewisham Choral Society presents music by two celebrated British composers. The contemporary Bob Chilcott has written many outstanding choral works. His serene Requiem is a reflective piece with a rich blend of choral and solo voices. Calm movements are interspersed with jazzy, rhythmic sections before the Lux aeterna ends the work in perfect peace.
      Vaughan Williams needs no introduction. His Serenade to Music is one of the most exquisite Shakespearean musical settings, as lyrical choral and solo passages depict the ‘concord of sweet sounds’. The jubilant Benedicite celebrates God’s creation: the work is in turns spirited and peaceful, with beautiful solo voices floating over the choir. The jaunty Folk Song Suite, arranged for wind quintet, begins and ends with lively march tunes, surrounding a setting of the haunting ‘My Bonny Boy’.

      LCS is one of London’s most accomplished community choirs, performing widely across the capital, including five Southbank appearances to packed houses.
