Come & Sing: Spem In Alium

Friday 14 July 2017
9.30-10.15pm
Chapter House, York Minster

2017 heralds the 40th anniversary of the York Early Music Festival and you are invited to be part of a very special event to mark the occasion. On Friday 14 July, there will be a massed sing of Thomas Tallis' masterpiece Spem In Alium for 40 voices - one for each year that the festival has been running!

Members of the Yorkshire Bach Choir will lead off proceedings but after that it's up to our massed group of singers to make the music and enjoy the moment.

You will need to download and print the music in advance of the event and bring it with you on the day. Sheet music is available below:
