Fresh from their recent performances in Normandy and at the London Coliseum, Pegasus performed a free hour-long recital of choral settings of texts from the King James Version of the Bible, to mark the text’s 400th anniversary.
Beautiful music – spanning five centuries – was performed in the glorious 19th-century Holy Trinity church, the “cathedral of the Arts and Crafts movement.”
Music performed included:
Henry Purcell – I was Glad; Hear my Prayer
Thomas Tomkins – When David Heard
Orlando Gibbons – O Clap Your Hands
Maurice Greene – Lord, Let Me Know Mine End
John Ireland – Great Love Hath no Man
Herbert Howells – Like as the Hart
Roxanna Panufnik – Deus, Deus Meus
Francis Grier – Now the Son of Man
James Lavino – Turn, Beloved
Owain Park – Let Thine Heart
The last work was a finalist in the King James Bible Trust’s recent Composition Competition.
