This special concert marks the recent 80th birthday of one of Britain’s best-loved living composers. Howard Blake OBE has an inspired gift for melody. Quite simply, he writes beautiful music – The Snowman and much, much more.
The definitive version of the dramatic oratorio Benedictus, one of Blake’s finest choral works, was premiered in St Albans Cathedral in 1986.
Sponsored by Howard Blake OBE
