Gift yourself the treat of an evening of choral music that weaves together the vibrant tapestry of life’s seasons with the beauty of the rhythm of the cycle of the natural world.

Music from Europe, Asia and Africa are fused together in this memorable programme, delivered with Exultate Singers’ customary engaging and entertaining style.

Exploring the timeless thread from mediaeval times to the present day, this carefully curated programme of music showcases evocative and intensely moving pieces by living composers, including the world premiere of a specially commissioned piece by the leading British composer Roxanna Panufnik, who was chosen by Charles III to write music for his Coronation.

A selection of evocative and atmospheric poems compliment the beautiful choral music, read by the Bristol-based actor Rose McPhilemy.
