English Touring Opera Concert
Soloists from English Touring Opera and period players from the Old Street Band join forces with Rochester Cathedral Choir for this special concert of Bach's Advent Cantatas.
Since Advent was observed as quiet time in Lutheran Germany, Bach composed a small number of extraordinary cantatas for the four Sundays preceding Christmas. This concert includes contrasting and powerful settings of Martin Luther's great chorale ‘Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland’, the joyful ‘Herz und Munt und Tat und Leben’ (‘Heart, mouth, deed and life’) and the melancholy 'Ärgre dich, O Seele, nicht'.
Tickets are available by calling 01634 338338 or at Www.medwayticketslive.co.uk

The Sixteen: Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610
The Sixteen choir and orchestra return to Rochester Cathedral with a performance of Monteverdi’s magnificent Vespers of 1610. Described by Harry Christophers as ‘one of the most significant collections of sacred music ever written’ it is famed for its thrilling rhythms, grand choruses and beautiful solo movements. We are also delighted to welcome Rochester Cathedral choristers, who will join The Sixteen on stage for one of the Vespers movements.
Tickets: £15 - 30. Tickets can be purchased from Medway Visitor Information Centre on 01634 338141.
