The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, under the direction of Graham Ross, who last visited us in 2016, has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. In the centenary year of the end of the First World War, their programme 'In Peace' explores themes of peace and serenity across the centures and how composers from around the world have responded to it in their writing for unaccompanied voices.

"Renaissance polyphony, sung like this by young singers of great energy, is a tonic. The basses sound rich without being heavy, the tenors are bright and flexible, the altos are vigorous and the sopranos crest above the whole with angelic purity and gleaming brightness." MusicWeb International

"...eloquent and translucent singing..." San Francisco Chronicle
