The Lily and the Rose

Tickets are now on sale for this concert in aid of the Priory’s Heating Project, to take place on Saturday 18 May at 1930.

Cantores Salicium is pleased to present a programme inspired by the beautiful east wall painting in the Priory. Each of the plants depicted represents a biblical symbol: barley and vines for the sacraments, roses and passion flowers for the crucifixion, palms for the triumphant entry into Jerusalem and also the triumph of the risen Christ, and Madonna lilies for the Virgin Mary. There are numerous musical settings of the biblical descriptions of these plants, and in this programme the audience will be treated to choral works ranging from the Renaissance to the twentieth century.
