The Winchester-based choir's new conductor Jamal Sutton will be in charge on the day. 

Jamal will open the concert with four well-known Elizabethan madrigals, such as Now is the month of Maying.

Later in the programme, these madrigals are exactly repeated, but this time arranged by Bob Chilcott with a jazz twist.
