'Spem In Alium'

Yesterday I went to see Thomas Tallis' 'Spem In Alium', sung by Leeds University Liturgical Choir.
It was wonderful. 
I love acapella music; the sound of voices unaccompanied by instruments is beautiful. The singers stood down each side of the Hall, and along the front, and we were inside the music. A very magical experience. It was one of those 'hairs-standing-on-the-back-of your-neck' experiences!
I thought this sky fitted the post; the sun setting viewed from the Hepworth, Wakefield.

  1. oh yes acapella choir singing...we were in Normandy last summer and an English choir happened to stay at the same campsite and they gave a performance in the open air which was magical and another that same week in a tiny was heavenly, truly out of this world! nice to be reminded of that again Jan.
