Next a contemporary composer – Rebecca Dale with ‘Winter’ – sung by the same vocal ensemble as the first piece – Voces8. An unusual septet follows and then part of the Christmas Oratorio by J S Bach. The piece Sleigh Ride from Delius follows on, then something exciting from Finnish folk lore performed by the Lahti Symphony Orchestra. The Programme ends with a setting of a twelfth century lovers’ lament by contemporary American composer Caroline Shaw.
