Ad Solem Chamber Choir

Sumer is icumen in

This talented group of young singers from The University of Manchester perform unaccompanied choral music that brings together different folk traditions connected by the theme of summer. Early music (Sumer is icumen in and El Grillo by Josquin des Prez) and folk-song mingle with pieces by Delius, James MacMillan, and Ligeti. The choir will also sing music by less well-known composers from the Baltic States - Peteris Plakidis and Eriks Esenvalds from Latvia, and Veljo Tormis from Estonia.
