Music in Farley presents Golden Consort

Date/Time
Saturday 23 May 2015 at 19:30

The highly-praised female vocal ensemble Golden Consort, hailed as ‘Wonderful, remarkable’ and ‘Amazing’ by recent listeners in Salisbury Cathedral, bring a colourful programme of songs for their Farley debut.

UPDATED picture of Golden Consort

Golden Consort takes wing as both a baroque instrumental ensemble and a professional chamber choir for sopranos and altos.  For our next concert at Farley with the harpist Katie Salomon, the choir will present a colourful programme of music by Brahms, Britten, Hildegard of Bingen, Holst, Palestrina & Stravinsky, plus and featuring Gustav Holst’s Choral Hymns from the Rig Veda for harp and voices.
