About The Event
Spires Chorus is pleased and proud to be taking part in this historic event. From January 27 - January 29 2022.
Join the 70 participants who have created Ghosts In The Ruins to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Coventry Cathedral. The walls of the Cathedral will come alive with history, before we reflect on our present and look ahead to our future as a city of sanctuary.
Nitin Sawhney CBE has created this new site-specific performance in response to Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece War Requiem. It explores acceptance, hope and resilience through extraordinary choral performances, newly commissioned poetry and visuals from both inside the new Coventry Cathedral and outside in the Cathedral Ruins.
On Thursday 27 January, we are proud to host Nitin for a special Q&A session after the performance.
27-29 January at Coventry Cathedral.
