A person conducts a choir as they sing.

Benjamin Britten’s ‘Hymn to St. Cecilia’ is one of his most enduringly popular choral works. Cecilia is, of course, the Patron Saint of musicians, and coincidentally Britten was born on St. Cecilia’s Day.

Under the baton of Hilary Campbell, Bristol Choral Society will also be singing the dances from Britten’s ‘Gloriana’, and ‘Rejoice in the Lamb’. This is a real festival of Britten’s music, in all its immediacy and humour. You won’t be drifting away during this concert, but you will leave Bristol Cathedral with some fabulous melodies and rhythms in your head.
