With Easter around the corner, Birmingham University Singers and University Women’s Choir turn their attention to liturgical choral music. The concert features the music of Howells, Fauré, and Vaughan Williams with works that feature talented student soloists alongside these two award-winning choirs. Vaughan Williams’s Five Mystical Songs is a
setting of four poems by seventeenth-century Welsh-born English poet and Anglican priest, George Herbert, and is performed with third year student Matthew Hayden as baritone soloist.
