masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.

John Rutter's Requiem
Thursday 14th November
Set within the glorious surroundings of St Paul’s Cathedral, John Rutter continues his celebrated partnership with the Royal
Philharmonic Orchestra in a magnificent programme comprising four of his own sublime works. Beginning with two psalm settings which
showcase the warm lyricism of The Bach Choir, the Orchestra continues with four magnificent Meditations based on choral anthems.
At the heart of this concert will be a moving performance of his own much-loved Requiem – a work he described as ‘intimate rather
than grandiose’ and ‘contemplative and lyric rather than dramatic’, and which ultimately moves towards light with its peaceful
conclusion. Book tickets.
