Choral at Cadogan 2016‑17
Now in its ninth season, our series continues to present some of the leading names in choral singing today, welcoming both familiar and new faces to Cadogan Hall.
St John’s College Choir makes a welcome return in December with an uplifting festive programme guaranteed to draw you in to the spirit of the season followed later in the month by The Sixteen with their Christmas programme.
We welcome Ensemble Plus Ultra for its Cadogan Hall debut. Renowned for their zesty, innovative performances, they perform a selection of songs alongside Shakespeare sonnets in a celebration of love.
We are thrilled that the Nederlands Kamerkoor is able to join us this year in a rare trip to the UK, so don’t miss this opportunity to hear them in a wonderful programme exploring the relationship between the heavenly and the human with Britten’s strikingly beautiful Sacred and Profane as its cornerstone. Ex Cathedra also focuses on heaven and earth with music of religious conflict and discovery, including Byrd’s exquisite Mass for four voices.
As always, The Tallis Scholars open and close the series with two contrasting programmes. The first a celebration of English polyphony including Tallis’ famous Lamentations. The second explores the beauty and complexity of the early Spanish renaissance featuring a 6-voice mass setting by Morales.
