The Elysian Singers are delighted to welcome Coro de Cámara Ainur, from Gran Canaria, for a joint concert celebrating the glories of Spanish and British choral music. Coro Ainur will serve up a selection of tapas from the Spanish renaissance and from regions of Spain, together with more modern classics from Cuba and Latin America. The Elysians in turn will present classic English settings of Shakespeare and in the madrigal tradition, before taking us on a tour of the four nations of the UK. The two choirs will come together for the double-choir Missa Ave Regina Caelorum by Spain’s greatest renaissance composer Tomás Luis de Victoria, and Javier Busto’s ‘Ametsetan’, a modern classic from the Basque Country.
