London Festival of Contemporary Church Music

The programme has been posted for the the 2011 London Festival of Contemporary Church Music. It can be found here. First impressions are excellent from the point of Jubal's Review. There is considerable amount of new Latin text settings and the return of several recent pieces notably some  by James Macmillan. Within the festival itself there are pieces performed more than once giving the congregations a chance to form more than a first im[ression of some of what is on offer. Various venues are being used including Westminster Cathedral.
