This April the Netherlands Kamerkoor welcomes back former chief-conductor Stephen Layton to direct a series of concerts across the country.  

Antony Pitts' polyphonic mass 'Missa Unitatis' is magical, creating a bridge between five centuries of music and several religions.

Next month Stephen Layton presents a very intimate performance of Bach’s St John Passion BWV 245 in St John’s Smith Square.  The choral lineup is nothing short of autobiographical, with Layton bringing together the forces of the two schools that shaped his childhood and launched his musical career.

At the end of the month, Hyperion will release a new disc of Christmas music from Stephen Layton and The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge. Yulefest! is a collection of seasonal music both sacred and secular, featuring arrangements of old favourites and some exciting new works.

The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge are in the United States of America for a series of concerts of sacred and secular music.  

The first concert of the tour is in the Church of St Ignatius Loyola, New York City, and is part of the Sacred Music in Sacred Space series. 

Tallinn's Nargenfestival presents a fortnight of music of the esteemed Estonian composer Arvo Pärt in honour of his 80th Birthday.

Stephen Layton will be conducting chamber choir Voces Musicales in works from the albums 'Kanon Pokajanen' and 'Litany'.
