Details

Hereford Cathedrals' choristers unite with City of London Sinfonia the length and breadth of Britain, performing Handel, Bach and MacMillan.

SPECTACULAR, ROUSING AND AWE-INSPIRING
Handel’s Coronation Anthems are made for the great settings of our nation’s cathedrals, resounding under their vast stone vaults for hundreds of years.

James MacMillan, one of Britain’s most revered composers, has written his own anthem especially for this national tour with support from Friends of Cathedral Music. And Bach’s music is poignant elegance in sound, synonymous with perfection.

There are few sounds as stirring as our cathedral choirs raising their voices in song, and they really soar when united with an orchestra like the world-class City of London Sinfonia.
