Blazing trumpets, Baroque dance and uplifting choral singing are all part of this year’s Cathedral opening concert. An Anglo-German co-operation between the region’s top chamber choir and their partner choir from Braunschweig will fill the soaring vaults of the Nave with the glory of Bach. From the intimacy of solo flute to the power of voices and the excellent players of Florilegium, a wide range of emotions will be touched and stirred.
