In Memoriam Sir John Tavener : South Iceland Chamber Choir

Book this event
Salisbury International Arts Festival

Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival

Salisbury Cathedral offers the perfect acoustic for a choral tribute that marks the legacy of Sir John Tavener. An ensemble with whom Tavener enjoyed a particularly strong bond, the South Iceland Chamber Choir will perform a number of his works, including The Lamb, Song for Athene and the recent Three Shakespeare Sonnets, alongside a hand-picked selection of beautiful Icelandic choral settings and a new work by UK rising star Jack White.

"...The performers were Tavener's favourite singers, the excellent South Iceland Chamber Choir, who began with some arrangements of Icelandic traditional songs. One could see exactly what drew the composer to them with their sweetly modal harmonies and clear kinship to medieval English carols." – The Independent
