From Pub to Pulpit – Vaughan Williams Celebration Concert

1st October @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

You are invited to sing along and celebrate the 150th birthday of composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.

From Pub to Pulpit™ is an imaginative concert tour which brings to life the musical journey of folk songs Vaughan Williams collected before ‘borrowing’ the tunes for hymn arrangements in The English Hymnal he edited in 1906.

Acapella folk group Broomdasher and folk/jazz/classical instrumental trio Coracle join Newcastle Cathedral Choristers and a massed choir of singers to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of one of the great symphonists of the 20th century.

The concert will feature full-blooded renditions of some of the country’s best-loved hymns, including: ‘To Be a Pilgrim’; ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’; ‘Tis Winter Now the Fallen Snow’ and ‘I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say’. These will be musically transformed during the concert from the original folk songs: ‘Our Captain Calls’; ‘The Ploughboy’s Dream’; ‘Brisk Young Farmer’ and ‘The Murder of Maria Marten’.

You, the audience, are encouraged to join in with the singing of the hymns in what will be a rousing, inclusive and enjoyable climax to the evening.

Doors at 6:30pm. Refreshments will be available.

Tickets £10-£12. Available via Eventbrite.
