This world famous Choir make a welcome return to the Abbey with a distinctly British programme spanning over 500 years of choral music.  16th-century composers Tallis and Byrd wrote at times of religious turmoil and national upheaval, producing magnificent works of beauty and musical mastery. Their legacy can be traced to some of Britain’s most celebrated 20th and 21st century composers, including Britten, Tippett and Sir James MacMillan, whose works complete this enlightening programme.
