For over 30 years Paul McCreesh and Gabrieli have surprised, challenged and inspired audiences with bold choral performances and award-winning recordings. Their 2016 summer a cappella programme (and this is the only chance to see it outside London) focuses on twentieth-century English secular music.

Taking its title from a Vaughan Williams partsong, the programme explores settings of glorious poetry and how poets and composers reflect upon the natural world as a metaphor for our own emotional experience. At the heart of the programme is the complex relationship between man and nature, and features repertoire by Britten, Warlock, Elgar, Stanford and Finzi.

"Listening to them is an experience you just never want to come to an end." Leipziger Volkszeitung.

Performance ends at approximately 8.45pm
