40 part Motets: Thomas Tallis Spem in alium and David Bednall Lux orta

Performances at 12 noon, repeated at 1 pm

Immerse yourself in the splendour of live choral music whilst admiring the open space of the nave. Index Cantorum returns to give performances of two choral pieces employing 40 voices, Thomas Tallis’ 16th century masterwork Spem in alium, and a recent composition, David Bednall’s Lux orta est iusto. Experience the music as ‘promenaders’, or sit informally in the middle of the nave, with the singers encircling the audience to provide Quadragintophonic’ sound.

Admission free, with retiring collection in aid of the Cathedral Music Fund.
