The Choir of St John's sings the premiere of Michael Finnissy's cycle of commissions for the Choir, sung in a liturgical context.

The Choir's Composer-in-Residence has worked with the Choir on this nine-part cycle since 2017, working closely with our singers and organists in developing each individual movement. This will be a special occasion that highlights St John's College's support of new music and the advancement of the choral tradition. This work was commissioned by means of the College Annual Fund and the Herbert Howells Organ Music Fund.
