Temple Church


The Guildhall School of Music & Drama in the City of London is one of the world’s top conservatoires.

Directed by Christian Forshaw, its revered Saxophone Ensemble presents ANTHEM, a wonderfully eclectic line up of music, from English composers Purcell and Wesley to Icelandic artists Sigur Rós.  Along the way, we hear medieval Catalan songs and twentieth-century minimalism. 

The sound of 21 saxophones and percussion in the legendary acoustic of 12th century Temple Church is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
