Cambridge Early Music Concerts 2014


The Hilliard Ensemble with Singer Pur

6.30pm, Friday 2 May, 2014
Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge
Tickets:  £20.00,  £15.00
To launch the festival, The Hilliard Ensemble has created a very special programme - testament, if any were needed, to their pre-eminence in the vocal world. 13th century French music, Pérotin, Sheryngham and Cornysh sit alongside traditional Armenian music, Arvo Pärt and Vache Sharafyan. The Ensemble is joined by Singer Pur for featured festival composer Ivan Moody's Anástasis.
The Hilliards evoke such gorgeous sonic landscapes, there is such delicate complexity in their tones, that this really is beauty of a rarefied quality. - Gramophone
