Join us for a delightful evening of musical gems for boys’ voices by Britten and Poulenc, to name but two of the great composers whose music will be presented in this concert. The Choir of St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, is one of the most renowned Choirs of Men & Boys in the world. Known worldwide from its many recordings and, throughout modern history, its participation in services on national occasions, most recently HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (2012) and the funeral of Baroness Thatcher (2013), the Choir’s main responsibility is to sing the daily choral services of St Paul’s Cathedral, for which it maintains one of the largest active choral repertoires of any choir, anywhere.

With Andrew Carwood, Director of Music, and Simon Johnson, Organist.
