The National Youth Choir returns to the Three Choirs Festival with a programme spanning centuries of choral works, from beautiful Renaissance polyphony to groundbreaking music of the twentieth century. Drawing inspiration from NYCGB’s 2021 theme of cultural identity, the concert marks the anniversaries of Desprez, Praetorius and Sweelinck, and showcases works by Joanna Marsh and Kaija Saariaho. The concert culminates in a spellbinding new commission and world premiere by British-Iranian turntable artist and experimental composer Shiva Feshareki.
