You are invited to take part in a virtual choir recording of a new piece, The Salisbury Anthem, composed by Morgan and Pochin and using the words based on a poem by Henry d’Avranches, (d 1260) and translated by Dr Francis Young.
This year we celebrate the 800th anniversary of the founding of the Cathedral and city. Sadly, we can’t meet and celebrate together just now, and we are therefore planning to turn the celebrations virtual and get hundreds of people from across the city to learn and video themselves singing the refrain of the new Salisbury Anthem. We will put all the recordings together to create an 800 strong virtual choir performance of the whole anthem to be webcast at the end of May, and we’d love you to take part!
