    St Andrew's and St George's West Church Edinburgh EH2 2PA

Interspersed throughout it, in this concert, are gems from the Wode Psalter, exquisite settings of sacred texts by contemporaries of Carver. A concert of rare and inspirational music.

    A Handful of Singers
    A Handful of Singers, Christopher Finch
    St John the Evangelist Church Bath BA2 4AF
    United Kingdom

    Bath's acclaimed chamber choir, A Handful of Singers, presents a programme of contrasts, juxtaposing the solemn splendour of Mozart's Requiem (as completed by Süssmayr), the dignified austerity of Vaughan Williams's unaccompanied Mass in G minor for double choir, and Haydn's cataclysmic 'storm' chorus, Insanae et vanae curae, written for a revival of his sacred opera Il Ritorno di Tobia. The choir is accompanied by a professional chamber orchestra.

    Established in 2002, the choir has forged a reputation as one of Bath's most respected choral ensembles. Originally a literal handful of experienced singers, the group has operated since 2005 as a versatile chamber choir of 20 auditioned singers under its award-winning conductor, Christopher Finch.

    A Handful of Singers has regularly performed at major events in and around Bath and in 2009 the choir won a significant grant from the BBC Performing Arts Fund's Choral Ambition Scheme in recognition of its distinction in choral performance and outreach work with local primary and secondary school choirs.

    In autumn 2013 A Handful of Singers launched its first commercial CD, Sing, Be, Live, See..., recorded in the fabulous acoustics of Prior Park College Chapel, Bath, and showing the diversity and high artistic standards the choir has been synonymous with. Excerpts from the recording can be heard on the choir's website www.ahandfulofsingers.org.

    Kew Sinfonia concert
    Clara Rodriguez, Kew Sinfonia, Marc Dooley
    St Anne's Church, Kew Green London TW9 3AA
    United Kingdom

    The concert highlight will be Chopin's First Piano Concerto performed by Clara Rodriguez:

    A pianist of rare quality in her very special brand of musicianship. She can and does play softly, with a range of nuance between pianissimo and mezzoforte of rare subtlety, of the kind which makes the music steal upon the ear like vibrations from another world. Her playing (Purcell Room) produced an unforgettable spell of unsullied beauty. Geoffrey Crankshaw, Musical Opinion

    Sibelius's Pelleas and Melisande opens with the portentous Sky at Night theme and continues with ever changing drama.

    Busoni's rarely heard Comedy Overture sets the character of the concert: warmth, lively tunes and emotions, drama.

    Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 1 in E minor
    Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)
    Pelleas and Melisande
    Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)
    Comedy Overture
    Ferruccio Busoni (1866-1924)

    Rachmaninoff: Vespers | Londinium (chamber choir)
    Andrew Griffiths, Londinium
    St Andrew's Church, Holborn London EC4A 3AB
    United Kingdom

    In celebration of the hundredth anniversary of its première, Londinium performs one of the greatest of all a cappella choral works: Rachmaninoff's magnificent All-Night Vigil. This monumental setting, enveloping ancient Church Slavonic chant in music of unparalleled richness, was Rachmaninoff's last major work before leaving Russia. It also represents both the final flowering and greatest achievement of the Russian Orthodox tradition before its suppression after the October Revolution. We precede Rachmaninoff's work with Kurt Nystedt's haunting O Crux, performed in memory of its composer whose hundredth birthday would have fallen this year.

    Vespers, 'All-Night Vigil'
    Sergey Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
    O Crux
    Knut Nystedt (1915-)
