Saturday 13th July, 6pm
St Paul's Church, Winchester

Southern Voices is thrilled to be celebrating 40 years in 2024 and we are truly looking forward to delighting audiences with our year-long programme of concerts. The Gala Concert is indeed the centrepiece of our year of celebration and, if you can only make one occasion, make it this one – wonderful music, wonderful musicians, performing the timeless classics of Vivaldi’s Gloria and JS Bach’s Magnificat.

Our Gala concert will be followed by a Gala Reception with wine, song, and canapes. What more could you possibly ask for?

Single candle glowing in the darkSpem in Alium

Saturday 23rd March, 7:30pm
 Chapel of St Cross, Winchester

What better piece is there to celebrate 40 years of music making than Thomas Tallis’s monumental 40-part motet Spem in alium. 40 years for 40 voices? This is a work that celebrates the real art of composition, a polyphonic masterpiece that is cleverly crafted to create a surround-sound effect in which the audience is centre stage.

Other works in this programme have been chosen for their celebratory nature, both of glorious music-making and compositional genius.
