It is a visionary work of great power, rarely performed due to the complex choral input, including a distant children's choir. This performance is at the request of the late Ian Buist, scholar, humanitarian, gay rights activist and distinguished civil servant, who sang Sanctas Civitas with the Oxford Bach Choir, conducted by Vaughan Williams himself. The choir will be joined by Wimbledon Youth Choir and trebles from Shrewsbury House School, Surbiton.
