Songs for a Summer's Eve

Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir
Greg Morris, conductor

Rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the capital’s most accomplished chamber choirs, Collegium Musicum of London makes its first visit to the atmospheric Crypt on the Green in Clerkenwell with a varied and colourful programme of a cappella songs, inspired by the summer sunshine.

Works by Vaughan Williams, Sullivan, Weelkes and Rutter, alongside popular Beach Boys classics and clever Gershwin arrangements will show off the versatile ensemble’s musical dexterity. With a great selection of up-beat and off-beat tunes, a terrific venue and a free glass of fizz thrown in, what better way to while away a summer’s night?

Hertfordshire Festival of Music 2019

Hertfordshire Festival of Music is the vision of conductor Tom Hammond and composer James Francis Brown - an annual summer celebration of classical music, based in the historic and attractive county town of Hertford during the long, warm days of midsummer.

Hertford is just over twenty miles from central London, easy to get to by rail and road but nestled in the beautiful countryside of the Lea Valley.

​Concerts generally take place within a ten minute stroll of the town's centre, which boasts excellent restaurants, many independent shops and accommodation for those who'd like to take advantage of the many events held over the weekends of the Festival.

Henry Purcell: Fairest Isle
Michael Tippett: Dance, Clarion Air

Inspired by the traditional 'grand tour' made by young British aristocrats from the seventeenth century onwards, Londinium embarks on an intrepid journey around some of Europe's foremost musical centres. Our route follows a typical grand tourist's itinerary: after leaving London for Paris, we make a perilous Alpine crossing to explore the treasures of Italy, before returning home by way of Vienna.

On our travels we encounter a dazzling array of repertoire - everything from the polyphony of Renaissance Rome to the polychoral splendour of Venice, the Neapolitan Baroque, echoes of Wagner's 'Tristan', the seductive soundworld of fin-de-si&engrave;cle Vienna, the sophistication of Debussy, and the music of our own time. Particular highlights include Clytus Gottwald's sumptuous transcriptions of Wagner and Mahler, Judith Bingham's bewitching 'Gleams of a Remoter World', the UK première of Matthew Recio's 'How to Survive Vesuvius', and - marking the quincentenary of the death of its protagonist - Eric Whitacre's hugely entertaining 'Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine'.

O beata Trinitas: Renaissance music for Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Renaissance Singers
David Allinson, conductor

A central tenet of Christian belief is that there is one creator, who is simultaneously Father, Son and Holy Ghost — the formulation so familiar from the Creed, and in countless prayers, that it may pass almost without a thought. The mysterious and frequently-misunderstood concept is celebrated on Trinity Sunday, one of the few major feasts in the calendar that celebrates a doctrine rather than an event or individual. In music, the concept became linked with the harmony of the major triad.

Join us for this programme of sublime mass music and motets in honour of the Trinity written during the Renaissance period, by composers from England (Tallis, Sheppard, Byrd), the low countries (Josquin, de Rore), Italy (Palestrina) and Iberia and the New World (Guerrero, Victoria, Lopez Castillas).
