An evening of Romantic Music, with music by composers as gifted as Schubert, Bruch and Bruckner, features the rich, expressive late-Romantic writing of Josef Rheinberger’s Missa Misericordias Domini, with a Ländler Benedictus as lovely as anything Schumann wrote and a chromatic Agnus Dei of near-Mahlerian intensity. Well-loved favourites such as Mendelssohn’s Hear my Prayer complete the programme.
