Bradford Cathedral will welcome the Queens’ College Chapel Choir from Cambridge for a very special one-off lunchtime recital today (Wednesday 11 August).
The choir will perform a range of pieces by composers such as Purcell, Howells and Mendelssohn, culminating in Harris’ Faire is the heaven.
The recital is part of a short tour by the choir, which has seen them visit Durham Cathedral and Wakefield Cathedral ahead of Bradford, and will also see them singing at the Evening Mass at St Chad’s in the city centre on the same day.
Bradford Cathedral will host an optional 30-minute talk after the recital to encourage and inform young people about the benefits of, and routes into, Cambridge and Oxford Universities.
Musical Director Ralph Allwood MBE said:
“I am really looking forward to this recital, partly because I have never performed in Bradford Cathedral before, and partly because we are doing some of the really great pieces from the Anglican repertoire.
Luke Johnson of the Bradford Cathedral Music Department said:
“This concert is one not to be missed, and it’s particularly valuable to young and aspiring musicians, though all music lovers are most welcome!”
Tickets are free, but are limited, and can be booked in advance via the Bradford Cathedral website or Eventbrite page.
