St Paul’s Church, Churchside, Chichester, PO19 6FT


NMH perform Victoria’s final, poignant work, which has been described as the masterpiece of the Spanish Renaissance. Beautiful plainchant melodies are woven throughout the work - either exposed by a solo voice or wrapped in sumptuous choral writing to create a work of mesmering beauty, which will ring around the staggering acoustic of St Paul’s Church.


Set alongside two other masterpieces by J.S. Bach - in particular his monumental eight-part motet, Komm, Jesu, komm - an uplifting plea for the coming of Jesus.
