Some of the UK’s finest young singers join us for a homecoming concert at the culmination of their month-long international tour, which included performances at the World Symposium on Choral Music in New Zealand. Presenting a diverse programme of music from across the world, the concert takes cultural identity as its theme and celebrates what it means to be human. The programme includes the UK premiere of this year’s NYCGB commission by Thea Musgrave, and Tallis’ monumental 40-part motet, Spem in alium.
