This concert, part of the annual Winchester Festival, drew its inspiration from its title: ‘A Little Late Night Music.’ Featuring a capella works including Tallis’s Te lucis ante terminum, Rheinberger’s Abendlied, Kodály’s hauntingly beautiful Este, Richard Strauss’s sublime choral masterpiece Der Abend and what was only the second British performance of Eric Whitacre’s Nox Aurumque, this special programme of music took us from evening to night, offering the perfect finish to the day.
