John Rutter's Requiem
Thursday 14th November
7.30pm

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.

St Paul's Cathedral Confirmation Service
Saturday 16th November
5pm
Join us for the Confirmation and Baptism of candidates from the Diocese of London. Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey at which candidates affirm the faith into which they have been baptised and their intention to live a life of committed discipleship. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands.
