Event Postponed

This event will not now be taking place on the advertised date following the mutual decision by the venue, the performers and the Festival. Windsor Festival is working with the parties involved to find a new date for the concert.

We apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause. When we have the new date available we will let everyone who has bought tickets know, and thereby we will not be refunding tickets. Should a postponement not be possible then tickets will be refunded.

The sublime setting of Stabat Mater by Poulenc is performed too infrequently. The gathering of these young performers presents a unique occasion in which the glory of this work is celebrated in the perfect space which is St George’s Chapel.

The programme will also include other beautiful pieces performed by the individual ensembles, as well as John Rutter’s glorious orchestration of the Magnificat from Howells’ Collegium Regale setting, included here in memory of the late Sir Stephen Cleobury who conducted this in his final concert and recording with King’s College Cambridge.

The Purcell School of Music Chamber Choir
The Chapel Choir of Jesus College, Cambridge
Taplow Youth Choir
Orpheus Sinfonia
Elin Manahan Thomas – Soprano
Gillian Dibden, Edward Longstaff and Richard Pinel – Conductors

Programme also includes:

Howells Magnificat from Collegium Regale
