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

Supported of the Yorkshire Bach Choir, a massed audience of festival-goers came together in the beautiful setting of York Minster's Chapter House, to join their voices in song in celebration of this special anniversary.
