Ancient instruments star alongside voices in a concert being given by Caius Choir as part of the London Festival of Contemporary Church Music.

On Saturday 7 May at 7.30pm in St Pancras Parish Church, London, the aulos, the Deskford Carnyx and the Lochnashade horn will all be heard in new pieces for choir and ancient instruments.

The equally stimulating first half of the programme features music from the Caius Choir's new CD, Chorus vel Organa: Music from the Lost Palace of Westminster. Further details are available here.

The two world premières at the performance are The Deer's Cry by John Kenny for choir and ancient brass, and Set Upon the Rood by Caius undergraduate Stephen Bick (2013) for choir, lyre and aulos. The evening also features other recent commissions by James MacMillan and Francis Grier. There will be a pre-concert talk at 6.45pm with John Kenny and Barnaby Brown (1992).
