CGMS with The Victoria Consort
Guest Conductor
Christopher Watson

Narrators:
Mark Bateson and Philippa Jevons

We present a programme of Chant and Polyphony linked to Magna Carta, Archbishop Stephen Langton and St. Thomas of Canterbury. The 1-hour concert takes place in the Crypt of Canterbury Cathedral, a location contemporaneous with the events and characters evoked in our music. CGMS sings chants honouring St. Thomas of Canterbury. The Victoria Consort embellishes this with polyphony from the Middle Ages referring to the life and works of St. Thomas. Narrators Mark Bateson and Philippa Jevons give some context to the links between music and events and celebrate the legacy of Magna Carta. Tickets £20 from Canterbury Festival Box Office
