You may have encountered some of the singers before in choral concerts similar to this. INDEX CANTORUM is unashamedly a â€˜list of singersâ€™ who, on occasion, take a break from professional commitments, musical or otherwise, to sing purely for pleasure. The repertoire that the group performs spans several centuries, and includes familiar favourites and lesser-known pieces, often specially edited from original sources. Founded in 1988, INDEX CANTORUM started with concerts in the London Churches of St Paulâ€™s Covent Garden, and St Patrick's Church, Soho Square. INDEX CANTORUM has performed regularly in Winchester, singing in the Cathedral for Evensong and Compline services, and in concerts including the gala evening for the Winchester celebration of the 450th anniversary of the marriage of Philip II of Spain to Mary Tudor. INDEX CANTORUM has previously appeared in the Cathedral lunchtime recital series, and the Flower Festival, and is delighted to return in 2016.
INDEX CANTORUMâ€™s future engagements include a concert in the Stockbridge Music Festival, and Evensong in Winchester Cathedral on Saturday 7th January 2017. For further details visit www.indexcantorum.org.uk.
