My choir, London Concord Singers, are busy rehearsing for a concert at the Grosvenor Chapel on Thursday 26th March. The programme consists of a group of motets by birthday boy Mendelssohn, motets by Morales, Gesualdo, Victoria, Monteverdi and Cecilia McDowall, plus Bach's Jesu, meine Freude.
Ironically, it turns out that another group is performing the same Bach motet, in the same venue, 5 days earlier (on Saturday 21st March). Still the remainder of their programme could not be more different, as they are doing a programme of contemporary Polish music including Penderecki's Stabat Mater
