Blow your trumpets, Angels.

Blow your trumpets angels
The City of London Choir, conductor Hilary Davan Wetton, is joined by Royal Philharmonic Brass and organist Stephen Farr for an evening of music for choir and brass at St John's Smith Square on 25 June 2015. The evening will combine the grand 16th century Venetian poly-choral music by Giovanni Gabrieli and by Heinrich Schutz, with the London premiere of Philip Moore's At the round earth's imagined corners, plus music by Holst and John Rutter.

A sequence of 16th century polyphonic written for St Mark's Basilica in Venice will culminate in Giovanni Gabrieli's 19 part Buccinante neomenia tuba. Whilst Philip Moore's new piece is a contemporary setting of John Donne's poem which uses trumpets sounding from the four corners of the building.
