The Vine of Grace

The Vine of Grace

We had hoped to record this programme and publish it online for our audience, but unfortunately the ongoing restrictions on singing indoors have made that impossible.

A journey back and forth in time exploring psalms and motets by German composers from Schütz to Mendelssohn.

Conducted by
Huw Morgan
