Siglo de Oro sang with a precision and glow that radiated through every crevice of Shoreditch’s noble St Leonard’s Church…” Arts Desk

Siglo de Oro – one of the leading young choirs of its generation – returns for a compelling Advent concert of contemporary carols, little-known renaissance music and a series of newly-commissioned works inspired by medieval prayers.

An evening filled with mystery and hope, contrasting the resonance of the saxophone with the glowing richness of the choir.

Approximate running time: 90 minutes (with an interval)
