Clifton Cathedral

Tickets: £19.62
Includes Bristol Beacon booking fee


Stars of stage, screen and the concert platform, The Erebus Ensemble returns with a trademark concert of sacred music to move and inspire. In this programme on themes of darkness and light, Erebus explores music from across eight centuries.


With stunning polyphony from continental Europe and ethereal holy minimalism by composers including John Tavener and Arvo Pärt,  Palestrina's groundbreaking setting of the mass, Missa Papae Marcelli is the centrepiece of this performance.


“Clear diction, beautiful blend…”

- The Times


“Tom Williams has a remarkable ability to balance and shape the textures of these great and complex devotional works.”
