Not one but Four Hymns of Praise!

Mendelssohn’s mighty 'Lobgesang', (“Hymn of Praise”) is also his second symphony. Composed for the 400th anniversary of the Gutenberg Bible, it praises God and the spiritual power of words, so Mendelssohn uses the emergence of words in Beethoven’s “Choral” Symphony as the model for this majestic “Symphony-Cantata”.

Opening the concert is the “Great” G-minor 'Fantasia and Fugue' — the most highly praised of Bach’s works in that form: a harmonic revolution in the Fantasia and a masterpiece of counterpoint in the Fugue.

New Zealand composer Chris Artley sets his spacious music in praise of the birth of Christ in 'O Magnum Mysterium', and Scottish composer James MacMillan creates new sounds of praise in 'A New Song'.

Overall, a complete Festival of Praise!
