Addison Oratorio and Chamber Choirs are combining with Godolphin and Latymer School Junior Chamber Choir for their next concert in Chiswick.

This concert, celebrating Springtime and the clocks going forward, features regular organist Edward Kemp-Luck and has a distinctly European flavour with a focus on British and Hungarian music. The Oratorio Choir sing music by two composers whose music is strongly associated with their respective countries - the imposing 'Te Deum & Benedictus' by Elgar and Kodaly's 'Pange Lingua', full of references to the melodies of Hungarian folk music. They will be joined by the Godolphin and Latymer School Junior Chamber Choir for Bob Chilcott's uplifting 'Canticles of Light'.

The programme will also see the world premiere of Michael Berkeley's 'Magdalene', the first of the new commissions that the Addison Singers have undertaken, written in memory of the much missed Cathy Bereznicki. The Chamber Choir add to the Hungarian flavour with sacred music by Liszt and two quirky 'folk-inspired' pieces by the greatest Hungarian composer of the second half of the twentieth century, Gyorgy Ligeti.
