Grete Pedersen conductor
James McVinnie organ

Join the BBC Singers, organist James McVinnie and leading Norwegian conductor Grete Pedersen for an evening of Scandinavian choral music at St Giles’ Cripplegate, London.
The concert features Grieg’s captivating arrangement of traditional Norwegian chorales – the Four Psalms Op. 74 for baritone and mixed chorus – which became the composer’s final composition before his death in 1907.

Choral works by contemporary Norwegian and Danish composers complete the programme: from Cecilie Ore’s Shakespeare-inspired drama on the vulnerability of life ‘Toil and Trouble’ to the profound harmonic layers in Knut Kystedt’s ‘Immortal Bach’, conceived by overlapping the elegant chords of Bach’s chorale ‘Komm, süsser Tod’.

Admission to this concert is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.
