O Earth, return!

This March Thames Chamber Choir returns to Bristol to present a concert of music with which to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Join us in the beautiful surroundings of St Paul’s church for a celebration of choral music old and new, including three Byrd masterpieces, Vaughan-Williams’ powerful and evocative 3 Shakespeare Songs, and Jonathan Dove’s spectacularly beautiful song cycle for double choir and piano, The Passing of the Year.
