Londinium opens its 2022-23 concert season with a celebration of the remarkable poet, George Herbert. Our centrepiece is Alec Roth's Shared Ground, a choral suite whose texts were written in response to Herbert by Vikram Seth, the current owner of Herbert's house at Bemerton. Roth's vibrant and inventive music alludes in turn to Bach's Komm, Jesu komm, which we perform alongside it. Our programme is completed by settings of Herbert's own poetry: superb recent works by Jonathan Dove, Judith Weir and Owain Park rub shoulders with rare seventeenth-century examples by Gibbons and Playford, and classic works by Herbert Howells and Richard Lloyd.
