“The darkness is no darkness with Thee, But the night is as clear as the day…”
Join us at dusk in the company of Ensemble 360, Sheffield Chamber Choir, and talented young string players including from Sheffield Music Hub and Sheffield Music Academy. This concert promises to be a magical exploration of the exquisite melancholy of the drawing in of evening, featuring madrigals and contemporary choral works, together with Mahler’s lush setting of Beethoven’s much-loved ‘Serioso’ string quartet.
Song sheets will be available to purchase at this concert.
Sheffield Chamber Music Festival runs 13–21 May 2022
