Tonight’s concert closes with Bach’s Magnificat, one of the most glorious works ever composed.  Before it come some popular choral works including Zadok the Priest, used in every Coronation since George II.  There is also the delicious Bach Keyboard Concerto No. 5 and the first performance of a new work written especially for this evening by LFC’s Choral Composer Scholar, Paul Dunkerley.
