An Immortal Legacy: Perth

18 May 2019 7.30pm St John's Kirk of Perth Tickets: £21.50 - 36.50(Booking Fees Apply)

We are delighted to return to the Perth Festival with a distinctly British programme spanning over 500 years of choral music. 16th-century composers Tallis and Byrd wrote at times of religious turmoil and national upheaval, producing magnificent works of beauty and musical mastery. Their legacy can be traced to some of Britain’s most celebrated 20th and 21st century composers, including Britten, Tippett and James MacMillan, whose works complete this enlightening programme.
