'Serenity' @ The Cathedral

Juliet Tranter (soprano), Christiane Litman (soprano), and Peter Litman (chamber organ). An evening of serene vocal music for female voices, beautifully accompanied by the Regent box organ. An opportunity to reflect, and take a breath in a busy world.

Taking us back to 17th century Paris the last surviving set of three Leçons de ténèbres is music ranked not only as the masterpiece of François Couperin's work but also is considered as one of the undisputed peaks of baroque vocal music.

Couperin's greatest strength is his emotional understanding. With no exaggerated effects, using a single soprano or a double voice-line beautifully accompanied by our chamber organ, here is some of the most poignant and moving music ever to come from the pen of this contemplative poet-composer.

So take a seat in the candlelit choirstalls of the Cathedral and share this rare and most exquisite moment of serenity with fellow music lovers. Seating in the choirstalls is subject to availability, otherwise you will be seated in the nave.

Do not miss this rare opportunity to witness Couperin's masterpiece performed live in subliminal surroundings.

Isle of Man Wind Orchestra and the Mannin Youth Choir @ The Cathedral

No strangers to the Cathedral, the Isle of Man Wind Orchestra with the newly formed and exciting Mannin Youth Choir offer the final concert in our series, and a rousing end to the year!

 

This series of concerts helps fund our teaching of music. It is our absolute privilege to teach the island's young people choral singing to a very high standard, and for this no charge is made. Additionally we fund the training of an Organ Scholar each year, and we provide all sacred music at the Cathedral as a gift to our Island community. 

Unfashionably, we have to fund music staff salaries and the costs associated with running the purpose built M L Wood Song School, as well as meeting the high costs of maintaining the Cathedral's pipe organ.

If you are able please consider helping us financially. Any amount, large or small, will be very much appreciated.

 Our treasured Choral Heritage - now, and for tomorrow.....
