AN EXCITING evening of music is coming to St Saviour's Church in Tetbury on Friday, May 4 with the vocal ensemble Excelsa Voces.

Formed in 2016 and led by soprano Paula Evans, Excelsa Voces blend medieval and contemporary music into an immersive experience, exploring the acoustic of the venue and enhancing the music with colour and candlelight.

The group have been working with the Churches Conservation Trust to bring their music to some of the Trust’s buildings and to support the work that the Trust does in preserving them.

For the concert in this beautiful Victorian church the quintet of singers are joined by cellist Tom McMahon and keyboard player and composer Chris Long, in a programme of music ranging from 12th century chant to contemporary works by Gavin Bryars, Joby Talbot, Morton Lauridsen and others.

Later this year the group will be performing at Edinburgh Festival, giving the premiere performance of a work specially written for them by Robert Fripp (of King Crimson) and Andrew Keeling.

* See Excelsa Voces at St Saviour's Church in Tetbury on May 4. Tickets £15 from and from the Town Council office on Long Street. 7.30pm. Refreshments will be served.
