This programme features two life-affirming works from the late twentieth century. Both accessible and imaginative, they celebrate man’s place in the natural order with power, spirituality and humour.

Richard Blackford’s Mirror of Perfection sets words by St Francis of Assisi. Andrew Carter’s Benedicite combines text from the Book of Common Prayer with words inspired by modern carvings at York Minster, and includes three light-hearted movements for children’s choir. Dag Wirén’s showpiece for strings, his Serenade op. 11, completes the programme.
