Choral Masterpieces from the Renaissance and the Modern Day
Leeds Minster June 24 7.30 pm
Please note this programme will be repeated on July 1 at St John’s Church, Sharow nr Ripon. For tickets and details of that event, please click here.
This beautiful programme of choral masterpieces mixes and matches exquisite music from the times of the two Queens Elizabeth, two golden eras of British choral music.
You will be able to hear works by the great William Byrd – who died 400 years ago this July – his friend Thomas Tallis, and their Spanish counterparts Victoria, Guerrero and Lobo.
And you can compare and contrast them with some of the most recent and stunning additions to our amazing British choral tradition – works by living composers Judith Weir, Cecilia McDowall and James MacMillan.
Or you can just sit, soak it up and revel in its sheer beauty!
The concert will last about 1.5 hours including an interval, during which refreshments will be served.
Set in the stunning surroundings of Leeds Minster, this concert is not to be missed!
