Sunday 6.30pm: Schola Cantorum
of the Bristol University Music Department, directed by Emma Hornby, in a programme of medieval chant and polyphony.

The Schola Cantorum is a choir recruited from music students, specialising in medieval chant. It was formed by Prof. Emma Hornby in 2007, and performs regularly in Bristol, and occasionally further afield. The Schola will be performing in the Netherlands at Easter this year.

In addition to her university activities, Emma has given workshops on medieval chant for all comers, including one at the 2019 Festival which was very enthusiastically received by the participants. She is a lucid and inspiring speaker.
