Chichester Cathedral Friends are proud to be the sponsors of The Southern Cathedrals Festival being held in Chichester from 18th to 20th July 2019.
We are delighted to invite you to the Southern Cathedrals Festival, and to an exciting programme of events, performances and services held in Chichester Cathedral and other iconic venues around the city centre. The Festival is a rich celebration of the friendship between the three Cathedrals of Chichester, Salisbury and Winchester.
The 400th anniversary of Heinrich Schutz’s Psalmen Davids falls this year and pieces from this exquisite collection feature in two of the concerts.
Three choral concerts take their place in the programme alongside four services (one recorded for broadcast by the BBC) and there is evening entertaining being staged in a marquee in the Deanery garden on the Friday and Saturday evenings.
The Festival culminates in a performance of one of the greatest achievements of Western music, JS Bach’s St. John Passion, in which the three choirs are joined by an exciting line-up of soloists and the acclaimed period-instrument orchestra ‘Florilegium’.
We look forward to seeing you there!
