Berlioz and Saint-Saëns

St Albans Cathedral

Berlioz Te Deum
Saint-Saëns Symphony no.3 (‘Organ’)

Britten Sinfonia
David Hill
Andrew Lucas conductor
James Gilchrist tenor
Thomas Trotter organ
St Albans Bach Choir
The Choristers of St Albans Cathedral

A rare chance to hear two monumental orchestral and choral works in the same evening. A concert not to be missed!

The Britten Sinfonia, one of the world’s leading ensembles, are joined by the celebrated tenor James Gilchrist and world-renowned organist Thomas Trotter. The St Albans Bach Choir and the Cathedral’s own Choristers complete an exceptional roster of performers.

Berlioz demanded that his colossal Te Deum should be heard in a huge space, and St Albans Cathedral is the perfect venue to immerse yourself in this powerful music.

Saint-Saëns considered the Organ Symphony to be his best work. Ever since its triumphant premiere in London in 1886, this majestic and monumental music has fully justified its reputation as one of the symphonic greats.
