From Darkness To Light

The Queens' College Choir performed for CWS on 9th January 2014 at St John’s Cathedral.  The Cathedral was filled with our wonderful friends who enjoyed a powerful and spectacular performance covering a varied programme of music from six centuries.  The music explored diverse responses to the darkness in life and the transformation of that darkness into light. Music by the old masters, including Tallis and Purcell, was mixed with contemporary works, including Eric Whitacre's modern classic Lux aurumque.

We are grateful to the Queens' College Choir, Silas Wollston and Suzi Digby (Lady Eatwell) OBE for making this evening possible.  Thank you to Sandra & Yan d’Auriol and Danielle & Gordon Oldham and all our wonderful friends in HK for supporting the evening.


The 26 versatile young singers of this leading UK choir present a varied programme of music from six centuries exploring diverse responses to the darkness in life and the transformation of that darkness into light. Music by the old masters, including Tallis and Purcell, is mixed with contemporary works, including Eric Whitacre's modern classic Lux aurumque.

  While 20th century music forms the core of the choir’s repertoire, the choir increasingly performs Baroque and contemporary music, reflecting the specialisms of the

Dr Wollston, who was organist and assistant to Sir John Eliot Gardiner for over 10 years.

The Choir’s CD recordings have attracted widespread critical acclaim. Their latest disc, ‘And Comes the Day’, described by Sony Music’s Ariama.com as ‘uniformly excellent’ mixes carols on late medieval English texts with settings of the great Advent Antiphons.

  In recent years the Choir has performed in New York, France, Germany, Southern Italy, Switzerland and Belgium.  They are coming to HK and dedicating their concert to CWS.
