Concert: The Kingdom (23 May 2020, 7:30 PM)

Lyrical and mystical in character, The Kingdom is perhaps the choral work which challenged Elgar’s genius above all others and for which he wrote some of his most stirring and inspirational music. Performances of this fine oratorio are relatively infrequent nowadays, so don’t miss this opportunity to hear Lichfield Cathedral Chorus, under Musical Director Ben Lamb, as they join forces with a large Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra and an array of talented soloists to present Elgar’s moving account of the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and the early activities and consolidation of the Christian Church in Jerusalem. An evening not to be missed!
