The Queen’s Six is formed of six lay-clerks from St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. In a short period of time, their adventurous programming and fetching style has won them significant accolades both here and abroad. Their eclectic programme of classical and popular favourites promises to be the highlight of the series.

Rarely-heard works of Iberian composers such as Lobo and López Capillas initiate us into the dark world of holy visions before we enter the light with Morley’s Arise, awake and Nico Muhly’s God will be their light - a cleverly exquisite modern take on the Anglican motet. Their clever and engaging arrangements of light and popular works, and fetching renditions of Michael Jackson, Duke Ellington, and Burt Bacharach will be sure to win many hearts.
