Event description

Description

The award-winning Pegasus Choir, directed by Matthew Altham, perform a free hour-long concert of music meditating on the themes of love and of immortal fire.

The centrepiece is Benjamin Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia, the patron saint of musicians.

Blessed Cecilia, appear in visions
To all musicians, appear and inspire
Translated Daughter, come down and startle
Composing mortals with immortal fire.
