Our concert at Buckfast Abbey celebrates both French and English composers.
The programme will include choral favourites such as Parry I was glad and Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine.
The newly installed organ at the Abbey will be put through its paces with three movements from Langlais Messe solonnelle.
Perhaps new to many of the audience will be Gabriel Jackson’s atmospheric work for unaccompanied choir, Orbis patrator optime, chosen to take full advantage of the celebrated acoustics of Buckfast Abbey.
