An evening of a capella singing featuring works from the 16th century to the present day: An event in the Bradfield Festival of Music 2022.

The international award-winning British a capella ensemble are known for their wide repertoire from renaissance, classical and contemporary choral music to folk, jazz and pop. They have recently been included in Gramophone magazine’s favourite albums of 2021 with their new album ‘A Deep but Dazzling Darkness’: a collection that invites you to ‘coorie doon’ and enjoy music of comfort and joy.


The title of the programme refers to that most potent symbol of love and its transience: the rose. Apollo5 explores this idea through a varied collection of repertoire spanning 500 years and several musical styles. The release includes works by composers as broad-ranging as Francisco Guerrero, Eric Whitacre, William Byrd and Michael McGlynn. The programme also features arrangements written especially for Apollo5 and several new commissions from contemporary composers such as Paul Smith, Toby Young and Taylor Davis. Apollo5 unites this diverse collection of choral music, from some of the earliest known polyphonic writing through to the world of pop, in an energetic exploration of the joy and despair of human love.
