The Purcell Singers write:
We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to live singing, with our first concert in over 18 months, My Spirit sang all day: Forces of nature in choral music! Join us as we celebrate with a programme dedicated to the forces of nature, with pieces inspired by traditional folk songs, poetry, and prose.
This concert will feature the world première performance of John Rutter’s Three Shakespeare Songs, three new pieces based on texts from Twelfth Night, The Tempest, and Much Ado About Nothing.
We hope you can join us for what will be a joyful evening of music in the beautiful setting of St George’s Cathedral, Southwark.
