Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir: Armada!

Sat 24 March 2018, 7.30pm
Priory Church of St Bartholomew-the-Great
Cloth Fair
United Kingdom

(Not an ILAMS concert, but one we highly recommend!)

At the heart of events that led to the Spanish Armada threatening the coast of England in 1588 were Philip II, the 60-year-old monarch of Spain, who saw himself as the defender of Catholicism in Europe, and Elizabeth I, Queen of Protestant and powerful England. But though divided by politics and war, the two nations of these powerful monarchs were united in enjoying a cultural golden age, nowhere more so than in the field of liturgical choral music. In a programme which will inspire a new recording to be released later this year, Collegium Musicum of London presents a vivid selection of works by English and Spanish composers active in these tempestuous times, celebrating some of the finest music of the Renaissance era, in the splendid setting of London’s oldest church – St Bartholomew The Great in Smithfield. Described by music writer Roger Scruton as having provided a 'benchmark' for Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers, after the choir’s outstanding performance of the work last June, Collegium Musicum of London Chamber Choir – under the expert direction of Greg Morris – is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the capital’s leading chamber choirs.

NOVA Guitar Duo Fundraising Concert

Sun 25 March 2018, 6.00pm
London Guitar Studio
62, Duke Street
United Kingdom

(Not an ILAMS concert, but one we highly recommend!)

Hailed as 'a guitar ensemble of the finest order' by the German newspaper Neue Westfälische, the NOVA Guitar Duo was formed when both of its members were studying at the RCM. Driven by the extended possibilities allowed by the unusual combination of the 6 and the 8-string guitar, also known as the 'Brahms-guitar', the duo explores the extensive original guitar duo repertoire as well as their refreshing own arrangements of music originally written for other instruments and ensembles. A member of Yehudi Menuhin’s Live-Music-Now scheme, the NOVA Guitar Duo has performed in some of the finest UK venues and festivals, such as the London Guitar Festival in Kings Place, Wigmore Hall, Buxton Festival, St John’s Smith Square and the Royal Albert Hall.

NOVA Guitar Duo will play the programme from their upcoming CD, which will be recorded in April, with music by Villa-Lobos, Falla and Mompou. All ticket proceeds will go towards funding the recording. To support NOVA Duo's CD fundraising campaign click here:

'One of the best interpretations of my work that I have ever heard.' Leo Brouwer

The classical guitar Tamayo-Montesinos duo was born out of both music...and love. Each recognised individually as major soloists, this Spanish-Cuban husband-and-wife duo have also established themselves as one of the world's greatest guitar partnerships. In this recital they offer a programme of solo and duo original works and transcriptions by some of the instrument's greatest household names - works full of virtuosity, fun and 'bel canto'.
