The Cathedral choirs of Norwich, Ely and Peterborough come together for a special one-off concert. Celebrating the centenary of the death of Hubert Parry, the programme features two of his much-loved choral works alongside music by his pupils Ireland, Holst and Vaughan Williams. The concert also marks the centenary of Leonard Bernstein, with a performance of his Chichester Psalms. Completing the programme is the first performance of a commission by former BBC Young Composer of the Year Alex Woolf.
