Sarum Voices sing carols by candlelight


Each year Sarum Voices presents two concerts at St Martin’s Church in Salisbury.  Christmas by Candlelight usually falls on a weekend shortly before Christmas.  Each year there is a smattering of newly-arranged/composed carols from choir director Ben Lamb. 

Our spring-time concert is with a small orchestra, offering such music as Handel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Solemn Vespers and other core repertoire. 

As well as these self-promoted concerts, the choir is often booked for concert series and festivals across the South.  Recent festival appearances include: 

  • Brahms – Ein Deutsches Requiem, as part of the Music at Beaulieu series
  • Chilcott – Salisbury Vespers (World Premiere), as part of the Salisbury International Arts Festival
  • Bach – Two motets & Todd – Mass in blue, as the opening concert for the Southern Cathedrals Festival

If you have never heard the choir Sarum Voices before (or even if you have) then come down to Sarum St Martin on Sunday August 27th for an early evening concert of great 20th Century British Cathedral Anthems.

Sarum Voices was established nearly 20 years ago from a core of former Salisbury Cathedral Choristers - many of whom have since carved out professional careers with international vocal ensembles. The concert will be conducted by Founder/Director Ben Lamb (former Salisbury Chorister and now Director of Music at Lichfield Cathedral) and accompanied by Cathy Lamb (former Salisbury Organ Scholar).

The concert takes its title from Rejoice in the Lamb, an extraordinary piece of music written by Benjamin Britten, which will be performed alongside other famous works such as Gerald Finzi’s Lo, the full final sacrifice and William Walton’s The Twelve. Ask any chorister to name their favourite choral works and you will often find these titles within their greatest hits. Although less well-known, the other works in the concert An admonition to rulers by William Mathias and All wisdom cometh from the Lord by Philip Moore are equally inspirational and exciting. Do come along!
