The Forbes Center is excited to welcome back this sell-out sensation!

Medieval chant and Renaissance works are interspersed with contemporary compositions to create an ethereal atmosphere of spiritual and musical reflection. Featuring a number of familiar favourites, these works showcase the rich dark sound-world of the Russian orthodox, the prayerful intimacy of contemporary English masters and the soaring contrapuntal lines of the late Renaissance. Closing with Harris’ spectacular ‘Faire is the Heaven’, this programme is a true homage to choral greats past and present.
