The majesty of Westminster Abbey comes alive at Strathmore! Coronation music for choir, brass and organ includes Handel’s famous Zadok the Priest. Sonic splendors feature Thomas Tallis’ Spem in Alium for chorus in 40 parts and Eric Whitacre’s new Alleluia. The evening concludes with the world premiere Of Radiance and Light, a commissioned work composed by the young, dynamic Maryland composer Alistair Coleman, and John Rutter’s exciting Gloria.
