This May Thames Chamber Choir celebrates its twentieth anniversary in the magical acoustic of St George’s Bloomsbury – the most idiosynchratic of London’s Hawksmoor churches.
Join us for a concert of great choral works, renaissance and modern, including Vaughan-Williams’ powerful and evocative 3 Shakespeare Songs, Jonathan Dove’s spectacularly beautiful The Passing of the Year and Thomas Tallis’s masterful motet for 40 voices – considered by some to be the greatest piece of early English music – Spem in alium.
