Rejoice in the Lamb
For our Spring concerts, we take you on a journey across the Atlantic with Rejoice in the Lamb, a concert focusing on the great British composers, past and present.
The centerpieces of our program will be Benjamin Britten’s cantata Rejoice in the Lamb, and George Frideric Handel’s stately Coronation Anthems, featuring the beloved Zadok the Priest. The remainder of the program will offer a broad mix of works by such notable English composers as Byrd, Elgar, Rutter, and others.
Backed by organ and a string ensemble, this will be an amazing concert experience you won’t want to miss!
