The music chosen for the day has a summer theme, and will include John Rutter's own Birthday Madrigals and folk-song cycle The Sprig of Thyme, together with a mixture of music old and new, with something for everyone and a few surprises.

The Tippett Quartet is fast establishing a reputation as one of today's most exciting new string quartets. Drawing inspiration from the past and present alike, they are committed to combining mainstream repertoire with contemporary works, and have been described as 'bold and innovative … extraordinary technical accomplishment with flair and a bright communicative spark' (The Times).
