Howells, Rachmaninov and getting competitive
A preview of our busy Indian Summer, including news of our qualification for the London International A Cappella Choir (LIACC) Competition.
Evensong in the City: St.Paul’s Cathedral, London
5pm Wednesday 12th August
Come take an hour out of the hustle and bustle of summer city life to hear us sing the sublime St Paul’s Service by Herbert Howells, in the building for which it was composed. Together with Herbert Sumsion’s little known gem Thou Wilt Keep Him in Perfect Peace and Bernard Rose’s evergreen Preces and Responses, this makes for both a contemplative and uplifting feast of choral music.
FREE ENTRY. Nearest tube station: St Pauls, Central line

Marking our debut at both The Brandenburg Festival and St Martin-in-the-Fields, join us for a very special candlelit anniversary performance of Rachmaninov’s All-night Vigil (commonly known as The Vespers). One hundred years after its composition, come hear the work complete with a fully homegrown ensemble of soloists and low ‘Russian’ basses.
