About the event

London Concord Singers, conductor Jessica Norton, celebrate Summer with Victoria's Missa O Quam Gloriosum, based on his own joyful motet of 1572. Perhaps one of the most perfect masses ever written, it balances great simplicity with controlled fervour. We will be performing both the mass and the motet, alongside a selection of motets by Poulenc, Rameau, Durufle, Bruckner and Hassler, plus Sir James MacMillan's O Radiant Dawn from his Strathclyde motets.

We will be performing at the church of St Bartholomew the Less which is within St Bartholomew's Hospital grounds (inside the Henry VIII gate entrance in West Smithfield) and has an 18th century octagonal interior created by George Dance the Younger within the medieval shell.

On London Concord Singers performance of James MacMillan's Tenebrae Responsories:
'the Concord Singers, under their new conductor Jessica Norton, tackled it boldly, and brought out the dramatic, descriptive strengths of the piece as well as its moving religious power.' (Michael Gray for RemoteGoat.com )
