Truro Cathedral Choir Concert with City of London Sinfonia and Stephen Layton

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. Spanning those centuries, 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 choristers raising their voices in song, and they really soar when united with an orchestra like the world-class City of London Sinfonia.

Tickets on sale from 13th June. Online from cls.co.uk (24 hours) or telephone 020 7621 2800 (weekdays 10 am – 6pm)

Adults £10-£25. Children £5, full-time students and 16-25s £5 selected seats. Other concessions available, see online.
