The programme includes highlights from the disc, including Arnold Bax's stupendous 'Mater ora filium' and works by Alan Bush, John Ireland, Elisabeth Lutyens, EJ Moeran, Alan Rawsthorne and Peter Warlock. Alongside this glorious repertoire Londinium performs an underrated masterpiece: Kenneth Leighton's 'Mass for Double Choir', op.44. Copies of the disc, which includes several premiere recordings, will be available to purchase.
