Watch Codetta Perform 'Nunc dimittis'

Derry chamber choir's stunning entry into the #SingMotets competition to have Welsh composer Karl Jenkins write the winner a new a cappela choral work

Welsh composer Karl Jenkins is renowned as one of the world's most accomplished writers, known for his Requiem and 'The Armed Man' mass.

To mark the release of his new album, Motets, Jenkins has launched a competition which will see the winner perform a new a cappela chamber choir piece – written by Jenkins and dedicated especially to them – in either Carnegie Hall or the Lincoln Centre in New York.

Derry's own internationally-acclaimed chamber choir, Codetta, did just that. Watch their astonishing performance of 'Nunc dimittis' above, filmed in Derry's Christ Church by R&D Media.

The #SingMotets competition closed on April 30, 2015.
