The last few tickets are on sale for the Christmas Concert in aid of Rowans Hospice at Portsmouth Cathedral on 8 December. Portsmouth Cathedral Choir and The Renaissance Choir will be celebrating 25 years of the Hospice and raising money for the Silver Jubilee Appeal. Tickets are available from the Portsmouth Cathedral shop or via the link below:
The concert programme will include beautifully written music from the 17th to the 21st century and carols to celebrate the festive season. The feast of seasonal music will include Renaissance motets by Victoria and Lassus, settings by Pearsall and Sargent, as well as modern works by composers such as Rutter and Chilcott. There will be old favourites including Tavener’s “The Lamb” and “O come all ye faithful”.
Rowans Hospice Silver Jubilee Appeal is an ambitious capital appeal project in 3 phases that will improve the overall experience for patients, families and carers. Phase 1 of the project will involve a complete renovation of the hospice building including bringing patients rooms up to date with modern technology and design elements and improving communal areas. This work will ensure that the hospice can continue to deliver outstanding care for the next 25 years and beyond.
