A recital of clarinet and saxophone music accompanied by organ
Sunday 10th March 2024 at 5.15pm
With Simon Lee (Tenor Lay Clerk) and Joseph Beech (Sub organist)
Simon Lee (Tenor Lay Clerk) and Joseph Beech (Sub organist) join forces to perform a recital of music by English and Irish composers on clarinet and saxophones, accompanied by the majestic Harrison and Harrison organ of Durham Cathedral.
Featuring music by Vaughan Williams and Gerald Finzi, the programme also marks the centenary of the death of Charles Villiers Stanford.
This concert is being presented to support the work of Durham Cathedral Choir Association. No ticket is required, but please be prepared to give generously.
After the concert, audience and performers will have the opportunity to meet and chat over a glass of something refreshing.
The sung service of Evensong takes place six or seven times a week. On Sunday mornings there is also a full sung Eucharist as well as a sung Matins service. This continues throughout the choir year, which loosely mirrors the pattern of the academic year.
