Salisbury Journal: Sarum Six concert Sarum Six concert

A RECENTLY formed male vocal ensemble of professional singers will be performing a Christmas concert at St Thomas’s Church in Salisbury on Tuesday.

Sarum Six was formed earlier this year by Philip Lawson, a former member of the King’s Singers.

The group’s wide repertoire includes liturgical music from the 16th and 17th centuries, madrigals from the Elizabethan era and contemporary Europe, part-songs and motets by composers such as Stanford, Parry, Ravel, Debussy and Britten, and arrangements of spirituals and songs in close-harmony. They performed together for the first time at the 2013 Farley and Whiteparish festivals.

Lawson (baritone) is joined by fellow baritone Richard Hooper, counter tenors Stephen Abbot bass James Ottaway and tenor Ian Wicks.

They will be joined for this performance by counter tenor Andrew Stewart, a former cathedral chorister.

The concert starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £10 (children free) and available from Musicroom in Salisbury or on the door.
