Schola to sing in Jonathan Dove World Premiere

On Tuesday June 10 the younger members of the Schola are to join forces with the Bach Choir, the Philharmonia and the Tri Borough Young Singers for a concert at the Royal Festival Hall. The programme includes Berlioz's spectacular setting of the Te Deum and also a new work, entitled Psalms for Leo by leading British composer Jonathan Dove.

Dove's music is known to the Schola - his anthem Seek that Maketh the Seven Stars is a piece that the choir has sung recently and we are currently working at the composer's Missa Brevis for a Mass at Westminster Cathedral later this term.

The concert at the Festival Hall will be conducted by David Hill. Below is a video of him in conversation with the composer, Jonathan Dove, about the new work.
