Event description
A rare chance to hear the Gentlemen of the Chapel Royal in concert, followed by a reception in the beautiful surroundings of Fountain Court

About this event

Join us for a wonderful programme of music composed in honour of the Virgin Mary in the glorious surroundings of Her Majesty's Chapel Royal in Hampton Court Palace. This is a rare opportunity to hear the Gentlemen of the Choir in concert, while absorbing the spectacle of the finest surviving Tudor ceiling in England.

The concert will include performances of:

  • Byrd: Propers for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, from Gradualia (1610)
  • Victoria: Missa Vidi speciosam
  • Andrew Smith: Stond wel, Moder, under rode

The concert will be followed by the unique experience of joining a champagne reception (included in the ticket price) in the baroque splendour of Fountain Court, built for William III & Mary II and designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Members of the Chapel Staff and of the Choir will be available to talk and answer questions.

The Chapel Royal is a jewel of architecture and one of the cradles of English Church music, with its choir amongst the finest of its type. The chapel is still a working church, and all are welcome to join us in worship. You can find details of services on our website chapelroyal.org

This concert will help to raise much-needed funds to help safeguard this treasure for future generations. NB: as this event is intended to raise funds for the chapel, the processing fees incurred by Eventbrite are being passed on to ticketholders.

CDs of recent recordings by the choir will be available to purchase at the concert.
