The annual concert based on the ancient liturgy takes another twist this year, with a quartet from Taimur Sullivan’s saxophone studio joining the Contemporary/Early Vocal Ensemble in movements from Gavin Bryars’s Grammy-winning The Fifth Century. With texts addressing “eternity,” the concert features a variety of British composers, including Judith Weir and Judith Bingham.
