Celebrating our 40th anniversary The Choir of Clare College Cambridge presents Tallis’s soaring 40-part Spem in alium alongside the work that inspired its creation, Striggio’s Ecce beatam lucem.

Joined by acclaimed cellist Raphael Wallfisch, the programme includes Giles Swayne’s anguished The Silent Land for 40 voices and cello, premiered in Christ Church by Clare College Choir almost 20 years ago.

Here is music with the power to transform your life.” The Times
