Finnissy’s choral music “penetrates the ear with an ambience and clarity that easily transforms the listener from the present to a Renaissance Burgundian court” (Classical Source). Finnissy's avowedly spiritual choral music, inspired by his religious faith, embodies the marriage between the intellectual, the cultural, the creative, the political, and often most importantly, the humane. Nathan James Dearden presents an evening of celebration for Finnissy’s 70th birthday year and present choral music written for the community by Michael Finnissy, Judith Weir, Howard Skempton and Robert Ashley.

The Spotlight Series: Finnissy at 70 is kindly supported by the Institute of Musical Research UK
