Concert: Stabat Mater (24 March, 7:30 PM)
Antonin Dvořák’s Stabat Mater, his first work on a religious theme and perhaps one of the most underrated masterpieces of the 19th century, was written in 1876–77 as the composer’s response to the death of his daughter, Josefa. The work focuses upon the Easter suffering of Mary at the foot of the cross, but reaches out to all humankind as a powerful exploration in music of the themes of grief and faith.
In this concert, on the weekend before Holy Week, Lichfield Cathedral Chorus, under its Musical Director Ben Lamb, is joined by the musicians of the Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra and soloists in a performance of this deeply moving work in the glorious setting of Lichfield Cathedral.
TicketsTickets are £25 (concs £23) and £18 (concs £16) [reserved] and £12 (concs £10) [unreserved] from Lichfield Garrick Box Office, 01543 412121

Concert: Parry Choral Works (2 June, 7:30 PM)
From Jerusalem to the hymn tune Repton and from Blest Pair of Sirens to the coronation anthem I Was Glad, Parry’s choral compositions had a profound influence upon our music in the 19th century. This concert of stirring and memorable works, with Lichfield Cathedral Chorus at full strength and supported by the mighty Hill organ of Lichfield Cathedral, will be a fine way to spend a summer’s evening.
