As part of the continuation of Britten Sinfonia and Mark Padmore's series 'Serenading Lincs' the orchestra are joined by the Choir of Grimsby Minster with young singers and performers from David Ross Education Trust academy schools across Lincolnshire.  In celebration of quintessentially English music and verse, they will explore one of Britten's lesser-now works, The Company of Heaven, alongside the works of his forefathers and contempories Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gerald Finzi.  Originally written as incidental music for a BBC Radio programme in 1937, it is punctuated with texts by the likes of John Milton, Christina Rossetti, Emil Bronte and William Blake.  The Company of Heaven was not given its first concert performance until 1989 Aldeburgh Fesival, but is nevertheless a stirring and compenplative expression of faith and love.
