Celebrating a programme of British composers, the Berkeley Ensemble joins forces with The Marian Consort and David Wordsworth to explore bold and fiendish music by father and son Lennox and Michael Berkeley, the current Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir, and two recent works by young composers Matthew Martin and Hilary Campbell.

At the heart of the programme is one of Lennox Berkeley’s finest and most substantial sacred works, the Stabat Mater, a stunning depiction of the human predicament centring on Mary’s suffering during Christ’s crucifixion.
