This unique event coincides with Gloucester Cathedral’s commemoration of the end of the First World War,

Gloucester Choral Society will stage a concert centred on Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, one of the most-performed works of our time.

The work will be accompanied by a specially created film, to be shown on a large screen in the nave. The film was designed to enhance Jenkins’ haunting score through thought-provoking visual poignancy.

The programme will also include:

Bruckner – Locus Iste

Fauré – Cantique de Jean Racine

Tallis – If Ye Love Me

Rutter – A Gaelic Blessing


Because GCS is inviting guest singers to “COME AND SING” in this exciting and moving project.
