Songs based on or inspired by the Song of Solomon. Music Director Peter Young says:

'For centuries composers have taken inspiration, in many different ways, from the beautiful words of the Song of Solomon, where love and religion are intertwined. Oriana presents some magnificent examples including the grandeur of Tudor England, the genius of Henry Purcell, the Romantic era and the modern age.

We are also delighted to welcome the acclaimed a cappella groupLuminescence Chamber Singers as associate artists.

We hear works from composers ancient and modern:

- Bruckner and Brumel

- - Grieg and Guerrero

- - - Purcell and Tomkins 

- - - - and the Chorale's own Phil Batterham.

Finally, William Walton will 'Set a seal upon my heart'
