‘Britain: Old and New’ with the National Youth Choir of Great Britain Fellowship Octet

This programme is a wonderful celebration of British composers ‘old and new’; and of the next generation of talent. The first half spans the sixteenth to the nineteenth century: from Taverner, Tallis, Byrd, Tomkins and Purcell all the way to Parry, Stainer and Harris. The second half is a delightful mix of British household names alongside works written for NYCGB through their own Young Composers Scheme. The National Youth Choirs of Great Britain Fellowship is a development programme for emerging young professional choral leaders. This group is the 2019-20 cohort.
