Description

DESCRIPTION

An exciting opportunity to see Allegri's Miserere performed by candlelight at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

Performed by the Pegasus Choir, this concert is an opportunity to see one of the most recognisable pieces of choral music performed in one of London's most atmospheric and iconic venues.

Haller's partnership with the Brandenburg Choral Festival means that the proceeds from ticket sales will go to supporting our vital work with Kenyan farmers.

Pegasus Choir
Matthew Altham Conductor

Performers

Part of London’s musical life for 20 years, Pegasus is known for its outstanding performances and imaginative programming. The ensemble gives about a dozen concerts a year with its director, Matthew Altham, and occasional guest conductors.

Pegasus has performed at the Tilford Bach Festival, the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music and the Proms at St Jude’s, and at various venues including the Queen Elizabeth Hall, St Martin in the Fields and the Almeida Theatre, as well as many churches in London and elsewhere in England. The choir has worked with the Southbank Sinfonia under the direction of John Rutter, and with the London Handel Players under Laurence Cummings and Adrian Butterfield, including Handel’s Israel in Egypt as part of the 2014 London Handel Festival.

Matthew Altham began choral conducting while studying at Oxford University, where he led performances of music by Poulenc and the major English Renaissance composers and sang with many of the principal university choirs, including Schola Cantorum of Oxford.

Alongside his work as director of strategy at a business information company, Matthew directs Pegasus, Vox Cordis and the London Bach Players, with whom he has performed on several occasions in Pau, France. He has toured as a conductor to Antwerp, Arezzo, Prague and Tolosa and has broadcast on BBC Radio and Classic FM.
