In 1991, The Philadelphia Singers continued thir expansion through the establishment of The Philadelphia Singers Chorale, a symphonic ensemble which draws from a pool of over 150 talented volunteers as well as our core of professional singers.

The text is principally in Middle English, with some Latin and Early Modern English. The piece was written in 1942 while Britten was at sea, travelling from the United States to England.
