A Hymn of Heavenly Beauty

Including pieces by Tallis, Allegri, Rachmaninov, Holst, John Tavener and Eric Whitacre

World-renowned chamber choir Tenebrae brings to the Cathedral a programme celebrating the great choral tradition from Tudor times through to the present day.

Including Allegri’s haunting Miserere as well as Whitacre’s resplendent i thank you God, the works showcase the rich dark sound of the Russian Orthodox, the prayerful intimacy of contemporary English masters and the soaring contrapuntal lines of the European Renaissance. With the choir’s hallmark ‘passion and precision’, this selection of favourite pieces in a great building is an unmissable treat.

This event is sponsored by Stefan Lipa Consultancy Limited.

Tickets: £28, £23, £17, £12 available from the Cathedral Box Office and online from 18 May.
