Derby National Gathering

Derby Cathedral
In addition to services at the Cathedral, the weekend will include talks from the Director of Music at Derby Cathedral and the Director of the Royal Schools of Church Music, a violin and organ recital and a visit to Repton School, to hear about the origin of the famous hymn tune.


There will be ample opportunity to explore the city and its cathedral. The highlight will be Sunday’s Choral Evensong at 6pm, where we will hear the first performance of the new Derby Canticles, sung by the Great Choir.  These were composed by Alison Willis, the winner of the Composition Competition jointly sponsored by Derby Cathedral and the Friends of Cathedral Music. There will be an opportunity to meet, and hear from, Alison during the afternoon.

Further details to follow.
