To mark the attachment of the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey to the Diocese of Salisbury, the cathedral choir is touring the Channel Islands at the end of March, singing a series of services and concerts.
This will be the choir’s first tour since the pandemic and forms part of the cathedral’s welcome to its Channel Island colleagues.
On Sunday, 5th March, a special pre-tour concert that will feature highlights from the tour repertoire will be held in Salisbury Cathedral.
The concert programme, which reflects the poignant season of Lent, features Gregorio Allegri’s setting of Psalm 51, Miserere mei, Deus, Hubert Parry’s Lord, let me know mine end and Stanford’s eight-part Latin Magnificat, which he dedicated posthumously to Parry.
The concert will be sung by the full choir (boys, girls and men) and will be conducted by David Halls, Salisbury Cathedral’s director of music. The choir will be accompanied both at the concert and on tour by John Challenger, assistant director of music.
Tickets for the concert on 5 March are on sale via the Cathedral website.
Doors open at 17:30 for an 18:00 start. Adults £10 and children £5.
Visitors with access requirements can book tickets via the Cathedral Box Office by emailing email@example.com or phoning 01722 656555. The Box Office is open Monday to Friday, 09:30am and 4pm.
