As Holy Week approaches, Londinium offers a stunning selection of music for Lent and Passiontide. Poulenc's arresting Quatre motets are heard alongside evocative works by Leighton, Bruckner and Sanders, and a sequence of fine motets and anthems by Tallis, Byrd, Purcell, Monteverdi and Morales. Music from our own time completes our programme: Matthew Martin's plangent setting of the Lamentations, Sarah MacDonald's intertwining of texts by Emily Dickinson and Emilia Lanier, and an unforgettable reinvention of Byrd by Roderick Williams.

Tickets include a complimentary programme, and wine will be served in the interval.
