2000 A Journey through Time: A candlelit concert of music written by British choral icons, and performed by The Fourth Choir

The concert begins in the modern world with living composers, moves back through earlier generations of British composers such as Britten and Tavener, and arrives at the oldest surviving piece of English music, St Nicholas, written by Saint Godric who died in 1170.

The Fourth Choir was founded in September 2013 by a group of LGBT+ singers aspiring to sing classical and modern choral works to the highest possible standard. Led by the highly acclaimed Dominic Ellis-Peckham, one of the UK’s finest young choral conductors, its goal is to represent the LGBT+ community on London’s world-class classical music scene.
