Join Continuum for Lamentation: Music for Lent at St Clement’s Church, Cambridge with music by Gregorio Allegri, William Byrd, Francis Poulenc and world premiere performances of music by Harold Thalange and Stuart Beer.
Continuum was founded in 2018 by Harry Guthrie aiming to represent the very best traditions of choral singing. The choir prides itself in offering original and dynamic interpretations of firmly established choral repertoire alongside promoting new commissions and under-performed pieces. Covering repertoire from the Renaissance to the present, Continuum’s singers are drawn from some of the finest choral institutions in the UK with many being current and former members of Trinity and St John’s College Choirs in Cambridge having met whilst at University. Many of the singers have performed with leading professional ensembles including Polyphony, Tenebrae, The Sixteen, The Monteverdi Choir and Voces8. The choir typically comprises eighteen singers.
