  • Poulenc's Gloria reflects his easy-going humour, mischief and solemnity. The work premièred in 1945 in Boston, Massachusetts. Originally composed for large orchestra, in the concert we will hear a small orchestra accompanying the Occam Singers chamber choir.  A pillar of 20th century English music, Britten's prolific repertoire includes operas, orchestral and choral works, film music and chamber pieces. Rejoice in the Lamb is based on Jubilate Agno, a poem by 18th century poet Christopher Smart, which speaks of the praise of God by all things, each in its own way.Throughout this year we are pleased to be supporting the work of the Meath Epilepsy Charity, Godalming.
