Truro Cathedral Choir Spring Concert

Howells Requiem, and works by Bairstow, Harris, Bainton, Parry and Walton: The programme for Truro Cathedral Choir’s Spring concert is built around the deeply personal Requiem by Herbert Howells. The six short movements will be split into three groups of two and interspersed with much-loved choral works that can be heard afresh in the light of Howells’s poignant music: Bairstow’s Blessed city, Harris’ Strengthen ye the weak hands, Bainton’s And I saw a new heaven and Walton’s Jubilate.

Tickets: Full Price: £14.00; Supporter Tickets: £15.50 (£1.50 from each ticket goes directly to support the cathedral choir); U18s free. From: CRBO Box Office - click the 'book now' button or in-person at Truro Tourist Office or by phone 01726 879500.
