Two previously planned trips to Portugal were pandemically thwarted, but weep you no more! This July we joyfully sing our whole Isle of Song at the Marvão International Music Festival and let the brightest roses of British choral writing bloom in Portugal’s highest hamlet. Radiant late Renaissance repertoire shall sparkle in the Iberian sun, and summer torrents of 20th-century tonality will wash over hill and over dale... O clap your hands together!
