10 - Music from across the Ages
Salisbury Cathedral Girl Choristers and Lay Vicars, directed by David Halls with John Challenger (Organ)
The choristers of Salisbury Cathedral maintain an unbroken tradition of church music at Salisbury, which stretches back for over 700 years in the present cathedral. They also performed at the first ever Calne Music and Arts Festival. In 1991, Salisbury took the historic step of forming another ‘top line’, bringing young girl choristers into the Choral Foundation and choir school. The programme will feature superb sacred music from the 16th century to the present day.
