Czech out Writtle Singers at Chelmsford Cathedral!

Saturday 27 March, 7.30pm, Chelmsford Cathedral

Czech composer Janacek's evocative setting of the Lord’s Prayer, Otčenáš is just one of the works that Writtle Singers will be singing this spring as they make their first excursion to sing in Chelmsford Cathedral, for a concert with cathedral organ scholar James Norrey. In addition to the cathedral organ, the Singers will be accompanied for this very varied and colourful programme by Finnish harpist Satu Salo, and Essex percussionist Katy Elman. As well as Otčenáš, the main works will be Roxanna Panufnik’s atmospheric Westminster Mass, written for the 75th birthday of Cardinal Basil Hume in 1998, and Leonard Bernstein’s vibrant and colourful Chichester Psalms, commissioned for the Southern Cathedrals' Festival in 1965.

All tickets £12. You can book by phone on 01277 658183, buy from James Dace & Son, Chelmsford, or book online via
