A celebration of England’s remarkable tradition of choral music. We begin in joyful style with the effervescence of Purcell’s I was Glad, written for the coronation of James II in 1685, and move on to explore well-known and less familiar repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries. The concert culminates with three beautiful and innovative contemporary works, including the world première of Hilary Burgoyne’s Fantasia on an Anthem by Tallis, which was runner-up in our Composition Competition last season and includes an audience chorus.
If you are a singer with some choral singing experience and would like to take part in the audience chorus of this world première, please contact audiencechoruscambridge.org.uk to register interest.
Part of NCS season ticket offer.
Other dates 18 November, 14 December, 24 March.
