Event Details

Choir of Trinity College Cambridge sing glorious traditional sacred music, alongside innovative and beautiful new music from Europe and Australia.

Stephen Layton is one of the leading choral directors of our time. His ‘home’ choir is at Trinity College, Cambridge, where the fresh young voices of male and female undergraduates are carefully auditioned for sought after places in what was recently named one of Gramophone magazine’s 20 Greatest Choirs.

For this tour they will perform one of the 20th-century’s most beautiful choral works: the 1922 ‘Mass for Unaccompanied Double Choir’ by Frank Martin. The composer regarded it as an intensely personal spiritual expression – it took forty years for him to allow it to be heard – and it has never left the spotlight since.

Surrounding Martin’s masterpiece is a rich cache of smaller pieces. Of special note are two new works: one by the choir’s Organ Scholar, Owain Park; and another by the Australian Joe Twist, commissioned especially for this tour.

Presented by Musica Viva. Musica Viva Member discount tickets are available.
