2018 sees the centenary of the death of C Hubert H Parry, arguably one of Britain’s most iconic and influential composers.  Enjoy a concert presenting some of his best known works including 'I Was Glad', ‘Jerusalem’, and ‘Blest Pair of Sirens’. Alongside this well-known repertoire, the musicians will present Parry’s engaging cantata ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’, a setting of Robert Browning’s famous poem, first performed in Norwich in 1905 and rarely heard in England since. This and the ‘Idyll’ from the composer’s Suite Moderne edited by the scholar and Parry biographer, Professor Jeremy Dibble, (Music Department, Durham University) will take pride of place in a concert not to be missed.

Tickets: £10 to £20 available from the Visitor Desk at the Cathedral in person or by phone 0191 338 7178 between 9.30am - 4.30pm Monday to Saturday (12.30pm - 4.30pm Sunday) or online.
