A programme drawing from the deep wells of English and Baltic choral tradition, at pivotal moments in history: the Tudor Reformation and the tide of ‘singing revolutions’ in the late 20 century.

Where Ugis Praulinš’ boisterous ‘Riga Mass’ electrifies, William Byrd’s ‘Ave Verum’ will soothe. Thomas Tallis, Vytautas Miškinis, Pawel Łukaszewski and Eriks Ešenvalds complete the picture – composers living centuries apart but connected by their ability to elevate our souls, even in turbulent times.

Here’s the full list of compositions included:

Ugis Praulinš – Missa Rigensis
William Byrd – Ave Verum Corpus
Thomas Tallis – Salvator Mundi
Vytautas Miškinis – Angelis Suis Deus
Eriks Ešenvalds – Magnificat
William Byrd – O Lord Make Thy Servant Elizabeth
Thomas Tallis – If Ye Love Me
Paweł łukaszewski – Nunc Dimittis
