Choral Concert: Blossom Street - BINGHAM, J. / CLARKE, R. / HOLST, I. / MACONCHY, E. / PANUFNIK, R. / WEIR, J. (This Day)

On 14 December 1918, women were permitted to stand for Parliament and were granted the vote for the first time in British history. As part of the centenary celebrations for this milestone and to raise awareness of persistent inequalities in society, Hilary Campbell and the distinctive choir, Blossom Street, present repertoire by famous and lesser-known female composers, ranging from Rebecca Clarke’s moving Ave Maria to Stef Conner’s haunting setting of Hildegard von Bingen’s text O splendidissima gemma.
