The British Are Coming!

October 2008

Join Chicago a cappella for a celebration of the glorious tradition of English music, from anthems heard in Tudor cathedrals to pop classics by the Beatles. Savor some of England’s tastiest musical exports, including saucy madrigals, sacred motets, choral works by Holst and Elgar, Baroque gems of Purcell, and even a song by King Henry VIII himself.
