ScarlattiStabat Mater
Vaughan Williams: Mass in G minor
J.S. Bach: Komm, Jesu, Komm

The OBC’s summer concert showcases three great works whose composers tried to recreate the old polyphonic style perfected by the likes of Palestrina. Each ended up saying something quite new and special in their own way. Thus J.S. Bach and Domenico Scarlatti, in the eighteenth century, and Ralph Vaughan Williams, recently back from the trenches of the First World War, looked backwards, but each created something new and utterly characteristic.

These pieces will sound especially fine in the magnificent acoustic of St. John the Evangelist.
