Festival of the Voice
Thursday 12 - Sunday 15 May 2016
A celebration of choral repertoire in the hallowed chapels of St John’s College, Trinity College and Jesus College Cambridge, our 2016 Festival of the Voice (12-15 May) showcases exceptional home-grown talent which is now internationally regarded. Recognised as a hub of historically-informed performance and education, this year's Festival celebrates core composers Bach, Monteverdi and Gesualdo contrasting them with works by Schubert, Beethoven and Ligeti.
Our Artist-in-Residence is star a cappella group VOCES8. Winners of Classic FM’s Album of the Year 2015 for Lux, VOCES8 includes two Trinity alumni. Acclaimed tenor James Gilchrist is ex King’s, and The Gesualdo Six’s director, composer and organist Owain Park, is at Trinity. This year we also welcome Belgium stars Vox Luminis and the Three Medieval Tenors who explore Conductus, the forgotten song of the Middle Ages.
Especially for festival week, services by the world renowned choirs of St John’s College and King’s College feature works by Palestrina, Vivaldi and Bach.
