This concert invites the audience to partake in the Easter Mystery and celebrate the return of spring. The programme features music by Sven-David Sandström and Knut Nystedt set to liturgical texts recounting the last days of Christ, and a selection of the most beautiful suites from the Nordic a cappella repertoire by composers like Wilhelm Stenhammer and Rued Langgaard.
The concert is part of a tour of England, which also features concerts in Hampton and London, where the choir won the London International A Cappella Choral Competition 2017, with a performance described by the judges as “completely masterful, technically measured and yet expressive to the core”.
Concert starts at 1 p.m. Durration 1 hour, Merton College Chapel, 4 Merton St, Oxford
