The group have built a reputation for choral music-making, having performed with distinguished groups including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, as well as being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and 4 and in many English cathedral venues.

Tickets to the event cost £15 if booked in advance, and £17 on the night.
