Gathering sixteen excellent professional singers from all over the country, the Turner Choir has chosen as its inaugural programme a stunning setting of beautiful movements from twentieth century masses. This 'Modern Mass' gives an opportunity to reappraise the familiar liturgy, allowing the music to create its own sacred space for an hour's reflection. Each movement has been chosen to reflect the romantic yet forward-looking character of the choir's artistic namesake, with a chance to hear Barber's powerful 'Adagio for Strings' sung as the 'Agnus Dei'.
