Watch Howard Goodalls Choir Works online: Episode 1 Choirs Perform

Howard Goodall re-visits choirs from his series on the world's greatest choirs and asks them to sing again. This performance special showcases seven of the worlds leading choirs and their contrasting choral traditions. The rich and haunting harmonies of South African Iscathimiya a call and response style are performed here by Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Christ Church Cathedral Choir in Oxford and Salisbury Cathedral Girls Choir, both stalwarts of English church music, perform works by Byrd, Stanford and Bruckner. The keening, yearning tone of Bulgarias throaty Cosmic Voices is contrasted with the joyous and heartfelt gospel of Just Us and The Temple Church Choirs in Nashville, and the clarity and purity of The Academic Female Choir of Tartu Universitys nationalistic folk songs in Estonia. The variety in each choirs repertory is complemented by their striking costumes.
