A Tudor Evening

21 June 2019: A Tudor Evening

On 21 June, SMICC is excited to welcome Cambridge Vocal Consort, a mixed-voice octet of former Cambridge choral scholars, to sing a varied programme of madrigals such as Farmer's 'Fair Phyllis', lute songs by Dowland and sacred music such as Byrd's stirring Ave Verum Corpus. The Consort is known for its refreshing approach to concerts, interspersing its performance with interactive and informative spoken programme notes.

The performance starts at 7.45pm.

Free admission

Admission to SMICC concerts is free, and refreshments are provided. However, we do run them to raise money, both for Clare Church itself, and for a nominated charity on each occasion. So we ask for donations at the end of the concert from those who feel able to give them. Thank you in advance for your generous support.

St Peter and St Paul Church, Clare

St Peter and St Paul Church, Clare

SMICC concerts are held in the beautiful parish church of St Peter and St Paul in Clare, Suffolk. One of the largest in East Anglia, the church can date its origins back to the 13th century. In fact, it has a list of past priests dating back as far as 1307. More importantly for SMICC, it has a superb acoustic for music, soft but clear.
