If you enjoy variety in concert programmes, then don’t miss Cantanti Camerati’s autumn concert.  Entitled “A Choral Tapestry” it is a colourful selection of items with a number of musical threads:  gloriously rich Tudor polyphony contrasted with nineteenth century Romanticism in the first part of the programme, and scintillating contemporary harmony balanced with lighthearted American folksong arrangements in the second.
