Join Granta for exultant choral music including Bach’s beloved motet Jesu, meine Freude. Full of joy and rejoicing, we move from Gabrieli’s Jubilate Deo, to Byrd’s Sing Joyfully to Janet Wheeler’s We Sing to God the Spring of Mirth.

Contrast comes from Cecilia McDowall’s Gaude et Laetare with its sparkling organ part played by Richard Carr,  John Rutter’s jazz setting of It was a lover and his lass and other gems. Enjoy an hour of choral music in atmospheric St John’s Church, Duxford with its ancient wall paintings and beautiful acoustic.
