The first concert in our special A La Carte season, to celebrate ten years of Tamesis. The programme for all our concerts this season has been voted for by our audience and choir members. This term we focus on both sacred and secular music, and the evening will include the piece that achieved third place from all of the votes – Eric Whitacre’s beautiful ‘Sleep’ – and much more.
