Just how great were the great composers in their twenties? And to what extent had they already found their voice? Selected by the eight singers of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain’s Fellowship Programme, a group of outstanding singers in their twenties, this beautiful programme explores the early music of composers from Monteverdi to Billy Joel. There is also new music from Owain Park, rapidly establishing himself as the current twenty-something composer to watch!

 

Supported by Michael Guittard and Harry Prince, and Pamela White
