The Heaven of your Desires
‘There is no rose of such virtue.’ Ex Cathedra performs a programme of glorious music with a strong Marian theme. Taking inspiration from Robert Southwell’s extraordinary hymn ‘New Heaven New War’, this concert explores Christmas music, old and new, including two contrasting settings of the Magnificat – the Song of Mary – and settings of two of the Great O Antiphons which are traditionally sung in the days leading up to Christmas.
