Performing the very best, and often unfamiliar, sacred, secular and consort music, Cantamus present a programme for the advent season drawn from nearly 500 years of music.

From Palestrina’s Matin responsory ‘I look from afar’, two rarely heard pieces in Spanish by Zespedes and Cereols, beautiful arrangements of the ‘Coventry Carol’, ‘Cherry Tree Carol’ and ‘The Seven Joys of Mary’, ‘Quem Vidistis Pastores’ by Dering, and Bach’s majestic Wachet Auf, to later works including carols by Richard Lloyd, John Rutter and John Tavener. There is also a new arrangement of ‘Righteous Joseph’ by Cantamus musical director Malcolm Knowles.

Expect a joyous celebration of the festive season.
