Spiritual revival – time to join the bandwagon!

The Hastings Philharmonic Choir is presenting more contemporary classical choral music with a strong spiritual impetus. After Arvo Pärt last Autumn, the choir  put on an enormously well received Christmas concert which, together with the old favourites, included brand new works from Chilcott and Rutter. This week, the choir again presents some deeply religious modern music to move the soul. HOT’s Chris Cormack argues that this resonates with a growing need to revive true spirituality in an increasingly confusing world, where religious dogma lies behind some horrific acts of barbarity.
