Beethoven at Worcester Cathedral

Beethoven - Mass in C and Richard Blackford - Mirror of Perfection

About this event

Dates, address & more

Two, thrilling choral classics - one old, one new - are coming to Worcester Cathedral on 16 March 2024, performed by the 140 voices of Worcester Festival Choral Society.

Beethoven’s radiant Mass in C major was commissioned by Prince Nikolaus Esterházy II in 1807. Containing some of the composer’s most sublime music for voices, the Mass is regarded as one of Beethoven’s most moving works.

The concert also includes Richard Blackford's breathtakingly beautiful 1996 cantata, Mirror of Perfection, expressively set to poems by St Francis of Assisi.

Performed with acclaimed soloists Susanna Fairbairn (soprano), Samantha Price (mezzo-soprano), Gwilym Bowen (tenor) and Dominic Sedgwick (baritone), the concert is accompanied by the superb Meridian Sinfonia orchestra and conducted by Worcester Cathedral's director of music, Samuel Hudson.
