Cathedral Marks Start Of Bury Festival...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, is pleased to be part of the annual Bury Festival. The opening weekend sees a number of events taking place at the Cathedral. These include a concert on Friday 16 May at 7.30 pm entitled ‘Supersize Polyphony 2 – an even bigger helping’. Performed by the Armonico Consort and Baroque Players the focus of the evening will be the rarely performed Mass by Striggio ‘Ecco Si Beata Giorno’.

The following day, Saturday 17 May, at 4 pm the Cathedral welcomes the Royal Academy of Music String Soloists.

On Sunday 18 May the Cathedral takes centre stage itself with the Festival Eucharist at 10 am with a special service led by the Cathedral Choir. Later in the day the Choir will give a concert at 5 pm including music by Byrd, Duruflé, Palestrina and Tallis. The repertoire will be repeated by the Choir later in the month when it visits Bury’s twin town, Kevelaer, in Germany.

The following week Cathedral musicians James Thomas and Dan Soper will give a Late Night Organ Concert at 10 pm in the intimate space of the Cathedral quire, finishing with a duet.

‘It is a pleasure to be part of the important music festival, which brings such a wealth of talent to our town,’ comments James Thomas, Director of Music at the Cathedral. ‘All of these concerts offer first class music and the Cathedral makes the perfect space to enjoy them.’

Tickets for all the concerts are available from the Festival Box Office on 01284 758000 or www.buryfestival.co.uk
