In Praise of Song


In Praise of Song is a concert to celebrate the centenary of Hubert Parry's death. The great British composer and Oxford Professor was described by Stanford as the best since Purcell.

The concert includes several works with an Oxford connection - "Oh love they wrong thee" and "Come pretty wag and sing", along with the final chorus from his oratorio "Judith". There will also be music by composers connected with Parry: Parratt, Stanford and Vaughan Williams as well as two of Purcell's most loved anthems, "My beloved spake" and "My heart is inditing".

Summertown Choral Society will be joined by Instruments of Time and Truth and eight soloists. 

Duration: 2 hours 15mins with interval
