Registration URL

The University Choir performs contemplative choral repertoire by Eastern European composers. Ola Gjeilo’s Northern Lights was inspired by winter scenery in Oslo and the beauty of the aurora borealis. Henryk Górecki composed Totus Tuus in honour of Pope John Paul II’s visit to Poland in 1987. The choir performs settings 1, 3 and 6 from Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil and Kodály’s Missa brevis composed whilst he sheltered in the cellars of the Budapest Opera House during the siege of 1944.
