If you’re after a sonic event with dynamic richness, emotional impact, ceremonial grandeur, and one of Europe’s outstanding lyric tenors, then this is for you.

A rare opportunity to hear one of choral music’s most astounding spectacles. A choir of over 200 and the outrageously fine Philharmonia Orchestra with 16 timpani, 16 trumpets, 16 trombones, 2 tubas and 4 rather rare ophicleides.

Submerge yourself in the splendour of this remarkable piece of music, and experience that magical quality that only a live performance can give you. If this is your first encounter – we envy you.

We're sorry but there are no upcoming dates for this event.
