(ends approx. 5.30pm)


‘Bless God in the dance, dance, dance!’ Rejoice in the Lamb is like nothing else in all choral music: a deliriously playful prayer, offered up by a visionary poet in music of irresistible originality and wit. And if Bernstein’s exultant psalms and music by Walton and Finzi that precedes it all share a similar spirit, that is because they were all commissioned by the same inspirational clergyman, the Revd. Walter Hussey. Poetry by Auden – another Hussey commission – frames a vibrant choral showcase for Snape Maltings’ choir.
