Sarum Voices sing carols by candlelight



Each year Sarum Voices typically presents two concerts in Salisbury.  Christmas by Candlelight usually falls on a weekend shortly before Christmas, and includes 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
