On Elgar’s birthday, a tribute in song. The Carice Singers take their name from Elgar’s only daughter, and his legacy – and particularly his fresh, poetic but unduly neglected music for small choir and vocal ensembles – is at the heart of their musical life. They return to Oxford with some of Elgar's most popular choral favourites.

But they’ve always cast their net wider, and this beautifully-conceived birthday garland also celebrates two near-contemporaries of Elgar whose lovely, intensely imaginative music has not always enjoyed the same appreciation. Discover the vocal music of the British-born, American-resident composer Rebecca Clarke, and the part-songs of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor – hailed by Elgar as “the cleverest fellow going amongst the younger men”.

A pre-concert talk with conductor George Parris at 6.15pm is free for ticket holders.
