Chief-conductor Peter Dijkstra compiled a masterly programme with a timeless theme: the wandering soul, drifting between heaven and earth. Do we listen to god’s command, or do we give in to earthly temptations?

Benjamin Britten must have struggled with this question. It can be heard in one of his most beautiful choral works: Sacred and Profane, written to medieval texts. The lure of the temporary sounds comical but heartbreaking in Berio’s Cries of London, about street vendors in 16th century. The works of the Swedish Lars Johan Werle complete the programme, Peter Dijkstra became familiar with the composer whilst he was chief-conductor of the Swedish Radio Choir. A ‘classic’ choral programme with a timeless touch.

The structure of the programme creates tremendous tension, with the ominous Libera Me by the young Slovenian composer Nana Forte, Arvo Pärt’s Trisagion, and Schubert’s exquisite Stabat […]
