The Purcell Singers return to St Martin-in-the-Fields in July for a full-length programme in celebration of English choral music and poetry.
Including Vaughan Williams' beautiful Serenade to Music and Five Mystical Songs, and George Shearing's wonderful jazz-inspired settings of Songs and Sonnets, the programme will be completed with works by Elgar and Finzi.
And in this summer of Shakespeare celebrations, the words will be provided by the nation's most famous bard, along with Tennyson, Byron and Shelley, Robert Bridges and George Herbert.
Join us in the heart of London for this pre-Olympic English extravaganza!
Tickets are £18, £15 and £9, available from St Martin's - book online or call the box office on +44 (0)20 7766 1100 Monday to Saturday, 10.00 to 17.00.
