Music of utter calm and tranquillity

Be sure not to miss this celebration of the choir’s foundation in 1984.
Unquestionably one of the most beautiful and most poetic of English cathedrals, Wells Cathedral provides the magnificent setting for Somerset Chamber Choir’s joyous Anniversary Concert, celebrating 40 years of glorious music-making. With a distinguished line-up of musicians, this will be a concert sparkling with resplendent jewels of the Renaissance and Baroque.

The Choir, under the dynamic direction of Andrea Brown, will be joined by Florilegium, one of Britain’s most outstanding period-instrument ensembles, and a stunning array of vocal soloists.

Tallis’s extraordinary 40-part masterpiece Spem in Alium, in a dramatic arrangement featuring cornetts & sackbuts, will form the centrepiece of this very special concert which will also include exuberant music by H Praetorius, JS Bach’s dazzling Magnificat in D, the soaring lines of Handel’s sublime Eternal Source of Light Divine, and one of Purcell’s most popular works, Come Ye Sons of Art.

“Florilegium have become an indispensable feature on the early music landscape. Long may they prosper” (The Times)
Concert starts at 7pm

Tickets: Adults £30, £25, £20, £15, £10 (under 16’s half price)
