Hear My Prayer: Choral Settings from the King James Bible

Sunday, 18 September 2011
Time: 4 p.m.
Location: Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Square, Sloane Street, London, United Kingdom
Organisation: Pegasus Choir
Topic: Bible


To mark the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible, Pegasus performs a free hour-long recital of choral settings of texts from the King James Version. Let yourself be transported by the beauty of works by Henry Purcell, Herbert Howells, Maurice Greene, Francis Grier and others, surrounded by the glorious 19th-century architecture and stunning stained glass of Holy Trinity church, the "Cathedral of the Arts and Crafts movement."

A highlight of the programme will be Owain Park's "Let Thine Heart", a setting from Proverbs which was a finalist in the King James Bible Trust's recent Composition Competition.
