Tom Winpenny plays Francis Pott's 'Christus'
Sun, 14 April 2019 at 3.00pm
On Palm Sunday, 14th April, Tom Winpenny, Assistant Master of the Music, performs the rarely-heard Passion Symphony Christus by contemporary British composer Francis Pott.
Composed between 1986-1990, this groundbreaking work has been performed by only a small number of organists. Its five movements trace the life of Christ: his coming; the garden of Gethsemane; the Via Crucis, Golgotha & the Deposition; the Tomb; and, finally, Resurrection.
The performance lasts around 2 hours 30 minutes, including an interval of 20 minutes.
There will be a retiring collection towards Cathedral music funds.
