Programme Note

Following his resignation as a singer, Leo became the Choir’s President, a position he held until his death; over this extraordinary period of devotion to the Choir he became a friend to vast numbers of his fellow singers, and gave unstintingly of his time and wisdom.

First performance 10 June 2014 in the Royal Festival Hall, London, by The Bach Choir, the Philharmonia Orchestra, and The Young Singers, a choir formed by The Bach Choir in partnership with the Tri-borough Music Hub, conducted by David Hill.
