Vaughan Williams: Sancta Civitas / Dona nobis pacem

Soloists:
Christina Pier, Andrew Staples, Matthew Brook
The Bach Choir, Winchester Cathedral Choristers, Winchester College Quiristers, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, cond. David Hill

 

Although Vaughan Williams described himself as ‘a cheerful agnostic’, he was not only steeped in the traditions of the Anglican Church, but sensitive to the mystical significance ‘of what lies beyond sense and knowledge’.

Written in 1936, his cantata Dona nobis pacem sets powerful Biblical texts alongside those by Walt Whitman and John Bright and is both a warning that mankind was sliding disastrously towards another war and a plea for a world without strife.

The oratorio Sancta Civitas, one of his most original choral works, strikingly deploys vocal and orchestral forces to depict the battle between good and evil from the Book of Revelation.
