SPRING 2018  Rachmaninov: Liturgy of St John Chrysostom  Christopher Wood: Requiem   Bath Abbey:  Saturday 24 March
 Two exciting pieces - vividly contrasting yet united by a warm and moving humanity - will echo around the beautiful fan vaulting of Bath Abbey this spring, as we bring   Rachmaninov's rich, immersive Liturgy and Christopher Wood’s lyrical Requiem to life.

Christopher Wood’s Requiem is a compelling and highly accessible piece with echoes of both Rutter and Puccini in its romanticism, which reflects on the nation’s emotions at the passing of the Queen Mother in 2002. This will be its first West Country performance.
