IKON - Religious choral devotions of the 20th and 21st centuries
including works by Karl Jenkins, Anton Bruckner and Arvo Pärt
During the twentieth- and twenty-first-centuries the size and scale of religious choral music expanded beyond that which was appropriate to include in the liturgy. As a result, large-scale, religious choral music began to make more regular appearances outside of the church and found its place on the concert platform. Entitled 'Ikon', the programme includes religious choral devotions from composers Karl Jenkins, Gustav Holst, John Tavener and Anton Bruckner. Many of the works have won the affections of both choirs and audiences the world over. As the Chorus returns to live music making the programme promises to be one that won’t disappoint.
