The Allegri Singers perform Music of Conflict and Memory, motets by Palestrina and Philips, from a time of conflict between the Roman Catholic Church and the newly forming churches during the Reformation. The concert at St George's Church in Kendal will feature Herbert Howells Requiem, one of the most beautiful and moving pieces of English Church music. The concert ends with Michael Tippett's Five Negro Spirituals from his oratorio A Child of Our Time.

Formed ten years ago, Allegri has gained a strong reputation for singing programmes full of interest for both singers and audiences. The concert is free with a retiring collection for church and choir.
