Berlioz Grande Messe des morts, Op. 5 90’

The enormous forces of Berlioz’s Grande messe des morts – including extended orchestra, four off-stage brass ensembles, ten pairs of timpani and a massed choir – make hearing it a rare and unforgettable experience. Add the exceptional acoustic of Gloucester Cathedral and one of the country’s finest choral directors, Adrian Partington, and it becomes unmissable. Berlioz’s thrilling masterpiece alternates from thundering drama to hushed intimacy.

Gloucester Cathedral

A warm welcome awaits you at Gloucester Cathedral – one of the finest medieval buildings in the country and steeped in history, from royal coronations and burials to Harry Potter film sets. Begun in 1089 and remodelled over four centuries, its architectural magnificence encompasses Norman and English Gothic styles. The extraordinary fan-faulted medieval cloisters and Great East Window are national treasures and the Lady Chapel houses some of the finest Arts & Crafts glass in the country.

Experience the beautiful Cathedral up close. Take a 360° virtual tour, customised by kind permission of Tetbury-based artist and photographer Maria Stengard-Green for this year’s Cheltenham Music Festival.
