About The Event
Spires Chorus is pleased and proud to be taking part in this historic event.
To mark the 60th anniversary of Coventry Cathedral, Nitin Sawhney CBE, recipient of the Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement, has been commissioned to create a new, site-specific performance in response to Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece War Requiem.
Ghosts in the Ruins reflects Coventry as a city of sanctuary, and its stand against war and violence, with a strong history of helping refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants. The work will explore themes of acceptance, hope, resilience, regeneration and reconciliation in relation to contemporary conflicts.
