Join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and John Rutter CBE for this very special concert within the magnificent splendour of London’s St Paul’s Cathedral, as the Orchestra celebrates its 75th year at the forefront of music-making in the UK.

The programme will feature masterpieces written by two great English composers, opening with Vaughan Williams’ ever-popular The Lark Ascending, which has been consistently voted as the nation’s favourite piece of music in Classic FM’s Hall of Fame, and is performed here by RPO Leader Duncan Riddell. Following in the first half are two of John Rutter’s own mesmerising and inspiring works which have helped cement the composer as a household name for modern choral music.

The second half of the programme presents an opportunity for reflection with Mozart’s final composition, his Requiem, performed here by The Bach Choir and a host of virtuosic guest soloists: Lucy Crowe (Soprano), Melanie Marshall (Mezzo-Soprano), Joshua Ellicott (Tenor) and David Stout (Baritone).
