Dave Finnegan's Commitments: Live at the Cathedral

Friday 9 October at 7:30 PM

Stelliferous Limited and Live at the Cathedral Ltd by arrangement with Piper Music Management presents Dave Finnegan’s Commitments and Lolly: Live at Durham Cathedral.

Over twenty years on, neither time age nor music has managed to tame one of the soul survivors of the Commitments. Mickah Wallace is brasher and louder than ever and continuing to spread the gospel of soul to the undisputed masses.  Dave Finnegan's Commitments undoubtedly continue where the film left off, still spreading the word of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and the other apostles of soul, and in doing so enabling us all to experience live, the essence of... sweet soul music.

The Sixteen: The Choral Pilgrimage 2020: The Call of Rome

Friday 16 October at 7:30 PM
2020 marks the 20th anniversary of The Sixteen’s annual Choral Pilgrimage tour. Since 2000 the choir have travelled the length and breadth of the UK, discovering some of the country’s most beautiful architecture and building relationships with wonderful communities, many of which they return to year after year.


This year’s tour focuses on Rome, a city which has inspired countless pilgrimages, and where each of the four composers in this year’s programme created some of their finest work. Motets by Josquin and F. Anerio are framed by Victoria’s powerful Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday, culminating in Allegri’s eternal Miserere.
