A place where angels sing

Marking their first live concerts since the start of the pandemic, the Choir returns to Leamington to present a sumptuous choral programme that unlocks the silence and celebrates the human voice in song.

Interwoven amongst masterpieces by Byrd and MacMillan are a fascinating selection of recent Icelandic choral works, American spirituals, folksongs, and Ross’s own arrangement of Abide with me.

Concert generously supported by Michael & Halldóra Blair
