The Cardinall's Musick: Performance Diary

View the list below or see the performance calendar on the right.

Concert: BBC Proms (Monday 20 July 2015, 1.00 pm)

The Cardinall’s Musick launches this year’s lunchtime series of Chamber Proms at Cadogan Hall with a programme celebrating the genius of Thomas Tallis.  Forty of the finest consort singers in the country will gather to perform Tallis’s Spem in alium.  Other highlights will include Tallis’s brooding setting of Suscipe quaeso and the luminous beauty of Videte miraculum.  The programme will also include the world premiere of a new work by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, the first in what we hope will be a series of commissions from female composers.  Cheryl was one of a handful of young female composers featured on Radio 3′s Composer of the Week series for International Women’s Day.
