Our celebration of the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth continues with renowned custodians of the great English choral tradition, the Choir of King’s College Cambridge, conducted by Stephen Cleobury in one of his final performances following a thirty-five year tenure at their helm. A sumptuous programme of psalm settings by composers close to the heart of the Festival alternates between reflection and celebration, with Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms described by the composer as ‘my youngest child, old-fashioned and sweet’, climaxing in the chapel-filling thunder of Parry’s I was glad.
