Concerts in Canterbury Cathedral since 1951Navigation
Haydn Creation is a ground-breaking work. It is remarkable for its ingenious and original use of the orchestra to describe the Book of Genesis. The Creation is full of delight including great whales, sunrise, rolling seas and even leaping tigers all evoked in a rich tapestry of sound. Haydn Creation is one of the greatest oratorios.
The programme will feature the successful CCS Youth Choir and the Festival Brass Ensemble. Carols for all, including Once in Royal David’s City; O Come, All Ye Faithful and Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. Children in the audience will be invited to come forward to sing on the stage.
Voice tests for new members are the week after each performance. Rehearsals are disciplined but always rewarding. You might be amazed about how far we progress from first rehearsal to concert.
