John Rutter conducts his life-affirming Requiem under the great dome of St Paul’s Cathedral, returning with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Bach Choir for this entrancing concert of music by one of the world’s most cherished living composers.

Alongside the stirring choral work Lord thou hast been our refuge is the Ukrainian Prayer, a work that moves the listener in its plea for protection and courage.

Hear the UK premiere of St Cataldo, a new work that charts the journey of the Irish saint to Taranto, Italy, and is inspired by the beauty of the city’s cathedral that is named after him.

John Rutter’s widely-acclaimed Requiem draws from the traditional Latin text as well as English Psalm settings, and mediates between their themes of death, faith and spiritual ascension with a rich and tender lyricism.

Musicians and storytellers come together to consider the impact of climate change in an evocative programme of words and music.

NW Live Arts’ dynamic musicians explore the sounds of our planet – music of the air, sea, sky, forests and landscapes – in a programme of Bach, Bartok and Messiaen, free improvisation, new composition and music from West Africa and South Korea. Sharing the stage, creative storytellers from the local community join the musical conversation asking us to value our connections to nature and find a way to let the planet restore.

“I’m delighted that NW Live Arts has created a mission to actively create platforms where social themes and ideas can be delivered in engaging ways – directly into the hearts of communities by talented artists and musicians.”
