Events at this Venue


In a major classical concert at Worcester Cathedral this autumn, Worcester Festival Choral Society performs two, passionate choral masterworks written two centuries apart.

Haydn’s Mass in D Minor of 1798 – popularly known as the Nelson Mass after the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 - is one of his most well-known and beloved works. Featuring glorious choral passages, powerful orchestration and 'fireworks' from the soprano soloist, this is an unmissable chance to enjoy a true musical masterpiece.

A contemporary piece of traditional beauty, Lauridsen’s 1997 Lux Aeterna - Eternal Light - is described by the American composer as “an intimate work of quiet serenity, symbolising hope, reassurance, goodness and illumination.” Based on Latin texts that all relate to light, Lux Aeterna creates an exquisite choral experience.

Supporting Worcester Festival Choral Society – a Three Choirs Festival choir – are the Meridian Sinfonia and acclaimed soloists. The concert is conducted by Peter Nardone.
