King Solomon's Singers next concert September 22nd
King Solomon's Singers' upcoming concert will take place at 8PM on Saturday, September 22nd in
beautiful St. Clement Church.
The repertoire will be English Catholic polyphony,
spanning nearly two full centuries, from the "Contenance Angloise" period of
Dunstable and Plummer, through the Eton Choirbook, to the secret laments on
the fate of the Catholic Church by Elizabethan masters Tallis and Byrd.
