Gothic Voices
Catherine King mezzo soprano

Join outstanding vocal ensemble Gothic Voices in the dramatic and eerily quiet Tower of London for an intimate performance in the Chapel Royal – the final resting place of Sir Thomas More, Thomas Cromwell, Anne Boleyn, Katherine Howard and Lady Jane Grey.

Gothic Voices offset medieval and renaissance settings of Marian texts with contemporary interpretations, revealing both the mythical and human aspects of the Virgin Mary.

Approximate running time: 75 minutes (no interval)
