Coventry Cathedral to host 360 degree choir experience

Felix Nobes 4th Jul, 2018 Updated: 4th Jul, 2018

COVENTRY Cathedral will host a 360 degree musical experience featuring a professional choir and orchestra on Friday (July 6, 7.30pm).

Supersize Polyphony is one of Armonico Consort’s new and innovative projects in which a choir performs Tallis’ Spem in Alium and Striggio’s 60-part Mass in complete ‘surround sound’ – with the audience encircled by the choir.

The seven-date UK tour includes the flagship performance at the cathedral.

The celebration of large-scale choral works from the 16th century is a collaboration with the 26-strong Choir of Gonville and Caius College Chapel, Cambridge.

Singers of the Coventry Cathedral Choirs will make up the additional 20 voices for the Striggio Mass in Coventry.

A series of associated events for children and local communities forms part of the extensive project which includes workshops pop-up, performances and come-and-sing events in several tour venues.

As part of the Supersize Polyphony 360 project, Armonico Consort’s singing education programme, AC Academy, will give schools workshops in partnership with local music education hubs including Coventry Music and Solihull Music Service.
