Tom Williams - conductor

Bach’s triumphant Magnificat is the centrepiece of this jubilant festival choral finale. 

 

Powerful choruses and colourful arias combine soaring melodies with sonorous grandeur, filling every corner of Clifton Cathedral with the sound of choir and orchestra.


Alongside are Handel’s joyous coronation anthems, including Zadok the Priest, inspired by the pomp and grandeur of the royal ceremony where it has been performed for over 300 years.

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

- Bristol Post - Clifton International Festival of Music
