Winter Concert

Begin your countdown to Christmas with Lichfield Cathedral Chorus who are pleased to present two evocative and stirring pieces that are sure to rouse the Christmas spirit within!

Leonard Bernstein – Chichester Psalms

Commissioned in 1965 by the Dean of Chichester, setting psalms in Hebrew, Bernstein relied on his theatrical instincts in creating these dramatic and immediately-impactful musical settings. Including hints of West Side Story and other of Bernstein’s theatrical themes, the Chichester Psalms packs a punch like no other.

Bob Chilcott – Christmas Oratorio

Hailed as ‘a palpable success…and utterly new’ at its premiere performance, Bob Chilcott’s Christmas Oratorio brings the magic, wonder and joy of a centuries-old story to modern-day life. Using words from the Gospels of St Luke and St Matthew, intertwined with ancient and modern poetry and well-known hymns for all to sing, Chilcott’s Christmas Oratorio will bring you the wonder of the Christmas story in a new and sincere way.

Please note that rear nave seats are unreserved.
