The strings of the Northern Chords Festival Orchestra under the baton of Jonathan Bloxham (pictured) present a concert of favourite English classics. Purcell’s ‘Chacony’, in Britten’s famous arrangement, Elgar’s beautiful Serenade, and two famous excerpts from William Walton’s music for the Laurence Olivier-starring film, Henry V – ‘Passacaglia’ and ‘Touch Her Soft Lips’. Their concert culminates in Finzi’s masterful cantata, Dies Natalis, to words by Thomas Traherne, sung by the tenor Ben Johnson.
