ORA Singers conducted by Suzi DigbyORA singers  Read More

With 50 commissions under their belts, ORA Singers champion new music alongside vocal works that have stood the test of centuries. In this programme they weave secular gems from the Renaissance between songs inspired by Shakespeare’s tales of magic, toil and love.

It’s hard to fault the vocal qualities of ORA Singers… They sail through the air with an almost astonishing purity of tone, perfect balance and togetherness — ideal weapons for their chosen repertoire, Renaissance masterpieces and the new fruits of contemporary composers.
