Premiered to great acclaim at the Oxford Lieder Festival last Autumn, ‘Sounding North’ presents a regional exploration of Nordic choral music from the end of the nineteenth century to the present day. The audience will experience music and languages from Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Finland, in addition to 'kulning' (Swedish herding calls), Norwegian folk-singing, and 'löyly' (the sound of steam in a Finnish sauna).

'A magical concert - the music was just staggering - such variety and such a wonderful programme'
Prof Peter Davidson, Author of The Idea of North

Pre-concert talk at 6.45pm

All audience members attending the Saturday evening performance are invited to join a post-concert reception with Nordic-style refreshments!

The Carice Singers is a British vocal ensemble directed by George Parris, described as possessing a "beauty of tone" and "musicality" that "few can match" (Gramophone Magazine, 2016). Since its founding in 2011, the ensemble has gained an enviable reputation for superb performances and imaginative programming, resulting in concerts in 2018 at the Cheltenham Music Festival and the Oxford Lieder Festival.
