Introduced by Petroc Trelawny

Tallis:  Videte miraculum
           O Lord, give thy Holy Spirit
           Hear the voice and prayer
           Why fum'th in fight?
           Suscipe quaeso
           O nata lux de lumine
           O sacrum convivium
           O salutaris hostia

Cheryl Frances-Hoad: From the Beginning of the World (world premiere)

Tallis: Spem in alium

Cadogan Hall, Monday 20 July 2015

'Andrew Carwood elicits a highly distinctive sound from the singers'.

On From the Beginning of the World:
'I hope this impressive work secures the further performances, and hopefully recording, that it deserves'.

On Spem in alum:
'The tutti sections had immense power, and the crescendo to the final cadence was truly magnificent'.
