Manchester Camerata's Hearing Voices at Stoller Hall on 5 April 2024 features the ensemble, conducted by Simone Menezes, joined by mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill and Kantos Chamber Choir for a programme that explores voices from the past and present, the work and memory of those before us. 

So, there is Britten's re-creating Phaedra's fatal obsession, Arvo Pärt remembering Britten, Michael Tippett evoking Corelli, Sally Beamish in Showings using Julian of Norwich's revelations of divine love, and Nick Martin's Falling. Book-ending the evening are works by Purcell, Hear my Prayer and Dido's Lament.

A slightly different version of the programme, without Kantos chamber choir, features in Lancaster on 4 April 2024.

Full details from the Manchester Camerata website - Stoller Hall and Lancaster.
