A specially-curated concert created specifically for the unrivalled intimacy of the candlelit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

There are few spaces as atmospheric as the Globe’s Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Its quietness and closeness, coupled with mesmeric candlelight will calm, heal and hypnotise in equal measure. With a programme scored for 10 singers and two narrators, it’s the perfect place to hear the timeless beauty of music by composers including Finzi, Palestrina, Sheppard and Stanford.
