The concert takes as its inspiration a poem by John Donne of 1633, collecting together a broad range of rarely performed music about angels and the realms they occupy. 

In the centre of the programme is a tribute to Ralph Vaughan Williams and his longest-standing female pupil, the Irish composer Ina Boyle. Florent Schmitt’s Trois liturgies joyeuses concludes the concert in luminous ecstasy while also echoing the stunning Magnificat secundi toni by Pierre de Manchicourt.
