Truro Cathedral Choir Spring Concert
Allegri Miserere – and other iconic works for Lent
For the church, Lent is a sombre period of self-examination and repentance in preparation for the celebration of Jesus triumphing over death at Easter. Over the centuries, composers have responded with some of their richest, most powerful music.
For the spring concert, Truro Cathedral Choir will present an involved programme of powerful music by Sheppard, Tallis, Victoria, Lobo, Purcell and Greene, with Allegri’s sublime Miserere, three movements from the Requiem by Brahms and Parry’s poignant end-of-life anthem ‘Lord, let me know mine end’.
Miserere mei, Deus – Allegri
Hear my prayer – Purcell
In the midst of life – Purcell
Ich habt nun Traurigkeit – Brahms
Salvator mundi, Domine – Sheppard
O saviour of the world – Howells
Salvator mundi – Tallis
Versa est in luctum – Victoria
Versa est in luctum – Lobo
Lord, let me know mine end – Greene
Herr, lehre doch mich – Brahms
Lord, let me know mine end – Parry
How you can help us…
We are once again offering a ‘Supporter Ticket’ option – Truro Cathedral is a self-funded organisation and does not receive regular government or Church of England support.
We rely on public donations to cover the £1 million plus per year it costs to run and maintain Cornwall’s only cathedral.
The cathedral choir is an integral part of the cathedral and the Supporter Ticket has been introduced as an option for those wanting to help support and maintain the work of the cathedral choir throughout the year.
£1.50 from each Supporter Ticket goes directly to the Truro Cathedral Music fund – set up to support the choir.
Keep in touch
We would encourage everyone purchasing tickets for the concert to consent to contact from the cathedral, to ensure we are able to keep you updated regarding the choir’s events and activities throughout the year.
