Anyone who would like to join the performers for the final rehearsal and to sing at the concert is invited to book a ‘Come and Sing’ place.

If you would like to do this, please email [email protected] to ask for more information. Early booking is advised as a limited number of places are available.

The non-singing audience can sit back and enjoy the arias and rousing choruses of the famous oratorio, including the much-loved ‘Hallelujah chorus’, accompanied by Eboracum Baroque on their period instruments.

The performance will be conducted by the cathedral’s director of music, Tansy Castledine, who said: “Messiah is a choral classic and so rich in musical heritage; it will be a real pleasure to perform it in our beautiful cathedral again, especially with our friends from Eboracum. Whether you want to come and sing or just to listen, I encourage you to join us. Messiah is such a masterpiece of composition that there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”

Tickets for the concert are £25, £20 or £15 (plus booking fee), with unreserved seating. To book visit the cathedral’s ticket source page here www.ticketsource.co.uk/peterborough-cathedral/t-gndxeo.
