Programme Note

Some of the finest and most magnificent polyphony to come from Renaissance England and Europe, including Monteverdi’s Cantate Domino and Tomkins’ When David Heard and Music Divine.

The Songmen are an international multi-award winning a cappella ensemble. In 2011 they won awards in the sacred and profane categories at the prestigious Tolosa International Choral Contest and in 2012 they were one of only three British groups to be nominated for the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards in the USA, for their jazz album Midnight.  With an enviable reputation as one of the UK’s finest and most versatile a cappella groups, The Songmen possess a wealth of experience from the worlds of classical, sacred, and popular music, balancing their love for the old Renaissance masters with a passion for exciting contemporary composers through commissioning and performing their own original material.
