Gabrieli Roar, Paul McCreesh and Gabrieli's partnership with a network of British youth choirs, returns on 4 July 2016. A choir made up of nearly 200 young voices from six youth choirs (Bradford Catholic Youth Choir, Cantate, Hertfordshire County Youth Choir, Inner Voices, London Youth Choir, Taplow Youth Choir) will be joining the 50 professional singers from the Gabrieli Consort to perform a programme of music by Wesley, Tallis, Elgar, Mendelssohn, Byrd and Howells at Ely Cathedral on 4 July 2016, with organist William Whitehead. The concert will be part of the Cambridge Summer Music Festival.

Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort will be presenting a new programme of a cappella music, Silence and Music on 7 and 8 July 2016. The programme takes its title from a part-song by RVW and the programme explores how poets and composers reflect upon the natural world as a metaphor for our own emotional experience with music by Britten, Warlock, Elgar, Stanford and Finzi. On 7 July 2016, the programme is being performed at the Voices of London Festival and on 8 July at the Oundle Festival.
