GRAMMY®-nominated Williamson Voices, one of the élite chamber choirs of Westminster Choir College – America’s only dedicated conservatoire of choral singing – present a stunning concert as part of their residency at the Choral Institute at Oxford.

At the heart of the programme is James Whitbourn’s Luminosity, with its texts from luminaries down the ages, scored for Karnatic viola, Indian tanpura, choir, organ and percussion. Of Whitbourn’s work, the Guardian wrote: ; ‘Luminosity, his seven-movement celebration of the power of creative love, glows with hypnotic brilliance, fusing powerful vocal writing with seductive eastern influences.’ The choir’s director, the renowned choral conductor James Jordan and the composer conduct.
