Preview 6.30pm

Harry Christophers and a singer from the choir discuss the evening’s programme.

In a creative mix of old and new, associate artists, The Sixteen, make their annual Choral Pilgrimage, matching the florid motets of Sheppard, Wilkinson and Fayrfax from the Eton Choirbook with works by more recent masters of choral music; John Tavener, Eric Whitacre and Gabriel Jackson. James MacMillan binds these two historical worlds with a specially commissioned piece based on a musical fragment by the forgotten figure of Robert Wilkinson (c.1450-1515).

Harry Christophers visits Eton College to see the Eton Choirbook and talks to James McMillan about this year’s Choral Pilgrimage.
