Spirit of England

English choral music for a summer’s evening

Sherborne Chamber Choir
Conductor Paul Ellis
Organist Simon Clarkson

Some of the finest choral music written in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century for our churches and cathedrals forms the backbone of the choir’s programme, with anthems such as Elgar’s Give unto the Lord, Finzi’s God is gone up, and motets by Stanford, but there is also music from the Tudor period, with William Byrd’s wonderful Mass for Four Voices, and anthems by contemporaries such as Tallis and Gibbons. Finally there is a reminder of a little of our traditional folksong heritage, with songs arranged by Bairstow, Holst, Warlock and Vaughan Williams. Click here for the full programme.

At 7.30pm

Tickets £5-£16, under 18s free of charge, available from Sherborne Tourist Information Centre, 01935 815341.
