    The Chicago Master Singers (CMS) is one of the foremost choirs in the United States. Under the artistic direction of Alan Heatherington, the 100-strong choir performs an impressive array of sacred music, from Bach’s Magnificat and Mozart’s Requiem to the latest works by living composers.

    Today we are privileged to welcome the CMS to Newcastle Cathedral for a concert that marks the centenary of the end of World War 1. Their glorious programme focusses on the triumph of redemption, faith and hope, powerfully expressed in texts and music by some of the greatest English poets and composers of the period and always pointing to victory over death itself.

    The centrepiece of the concert is Herbert Howells’ magnificent Requiem, which is arguably one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenching works of sacred music written by any British composer, as well as pieces by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Richard Shephard, John Tavener, Philip Stopford, Kenneth Leighton, Charles Villiers Stanford, John Rutter and more.

    A concert not to be missed!

    In aid of Newcastle Cathedral, Church of St Nicholas.
