Join Britten Sinfonia and acclaimed vocal group Polyphony for an evening of exquisite choral music.
"One of the world’s finest interpreters of choral music” (Classic FM Magazine), Stephen Layton conducts Britten Sinfonia and his outstanding vocal group Polyphony in Fauré’s wonderfully intimate Requiem, which ends in radiant transcendence.
In the first half, we hear powerful pieces for strings by two great Baltic composers. Arvo Pärt adapts the spoken Orthodox funeral service whilst Peteris Vasks’ Musica dolorosa is full of winding, yearning melodies.
Our free wheelchair accessible minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will be in operation for this event.
This event is not recommended for children under 7 years old.
