We start with Pange lingua, one of the most beautiful and renowned in the repertory of Gregorian chant; take in a choral arrangement of Barber’s celebrated Adagio for Strings and the only liturgical motet written by Olivier Messiaen (O Sacrum Convivium); and end with This joyful Eastertide by Charles Wood. This joyful Eastertide, Away with sin and sorrow! My Love, the Crucified, Hath sprung to life this morrow.
