‹ Back to What's On Music: The Hilliard Ensemble

28 Mar 2014

Farewell Tour

'One of the most beautiful sounds in the world’ The Independent

With a repertoire ranging from Renaissance music to lilting minimalism, from angelic to irreverent, The Hilliard Ensemble has pushed the boundaries and raised the bar of vocal artistry all over the world for 40 years. These four decades of musical accomplishment are now celebrated in their farewell 2014 tour.

For the Howard Assembly Room they have created a programme of their favourite French and English song from the 13th-15th Centuries, including Ah! Gentle Jesu by the 15th Century composer Sheryngham, together with works by William Cornysh, Perotin and others.
