Event description

Description

Join us on a narrated journey spanning nearly 700 years, as we follow a chain of composers who each had an influence on their successors.
Starting with the central figure of the Burgundian School, Guillaume Dufay, we choose just one thread to follow through time, connecting each composer to his successors by a particular work, or by the style which they passed on to their pupils. As we follow the chain, we discover a connected series of teachers, students, idols and muses from the fifteenth century to the present day.
The programme includes some wonderful choral classics such as the Samuel Barber Adagio for Strings arranged for mixed voices, four of the Choral Dances from Gloriana by Benjamin Britten and works by Josquin, Willaert, Schutz, Bach, Brahms, Stanford, Beatles and Fleetwood Mac!
