Siglo de Oro: Advent Antiphons

  • Bishops Lydeard Church TA4 3AT (map)

We return to Bishop’s Lydeard Church with a compelling Advent concert of contemporary carols, little-known renaissance music and a series of newly-commissioned works inspired by medieval prayers.

An evening filled with mystery and hope, contrasting the resonance of the saxophone with the glowing richness of the choir.
