Birmingham Bach Choir return to Pershore Abbey for an exploration of the negro spiritual  from classic arrangements by the brilliant black American Moses Hogan, to Tippett’s famous spirituals from A Child of our Time, Rutter’s large-scale work based on spirituals called Feel the Spirit, and a new work to the words of one of the most famous spirituals of all, Steal Away, by Paul Spicer. Together they express extraordinarily powerful emotions to stir and melt the heart.

“Awesomely impressive” & “Stunning…great waves of beautifully phrased eloquence…constant fascination”
