“The Hilliard Ensemble is without a doubt one of the finest vocal ensembles in the world.” The Globe and Mail.

The Hilliard Ensemble have built a reputation as one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. The group’s distinctive style and highly developed musicianship engage the listener as much in medieval and renaissance repertoire as in works specially written for them by living composers.

Countertenor – David James
Tenor – Rogers Covey-Crump
Tenor – Steven Harrold
Baritone – Gordon Jones

The Hilliard Ensemble present a unique and unforgettable concert combining modern works with traditional sacred songs of the Armenian church, arranged by the monk, musicologist and composer Komitas (1869-1935).

Alongside these exotic and quasi oriental ‘sharakans’, the group will also perform music which has its roots in the Greek, Russian, English and Roman churches. The Catholic traditions are represented by James MacMillan, the Greek by Ivan Moody, the Russian by Alexander Raskatov and Arvo Pärt, with prayers from the English mystical tradition set by Jonathan Wilde.

Set within the wonderful acoustics of St Mary of the Angels, this intimate evening will be a highlight for music lovers.
