Join us for a wonderful programme of music composed in honour of the Virgin Mary in the glorious surroundings of Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal in Hampton Court Palace. This is a rare opportunity to hear the Gentlemen of the Choir in concert, while absorbing the spectacle of the finest surviving Tudor ceiling in England.

The concert will include performances of:

  • Byrd: Propers for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, from Gradualia (1610)
  • Victoria: Missa Vidi speciosam
  • Andrew Smith: Stond wel, Moder, under rode

The concert will be followed by the unique experience of joining a champagne reception (included in the ticket price) in the baroque splendour of Fountain Court, built for William III & Mary II and designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Members of the Chapel Staff and the Choir will be available to talk and answer any questions.
