Three Choirs Festival at Buckingham Palace

We can't imagine a better way of concluding our tercentenary year than with a performance in the Ballroom of Buckingham Palace, in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales, President of the Three Choirs Festival Association. Pictured by official photographer Paul Burns are the massed choirs from Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester, our three artistic directors Geraint Bowen, Peter Nardone and Adrian Partington who shared the conducting; organists Christopher Allsop (Worcester) Peter Dyke (Hereford, who seems to be invisible in the photo) and Jonathan Hope (Gloucester); six brass players from the Royal Welsh College of Music; and Drama, and baritone Roderick Williams who joined us to sing the end of Part 1 of The Dream of Gerontius.

The performance was generously supported by the Three Choirs Foundation.

Repertoire for the hour-long Buckingham Palace concert included works by Purcell, Handel, Parry, Vaughan Williams and John Rutter, together with the unaccompanied Psalm from A Foreign Field by the German composer Torsten Rasch, premiered at the Three Choirs Festival in Worcester in 2014 as part of the 14-18 NOW World War One Centenary Commissioning programme. Mr Rasch was present at the concert and was presented to His Royal Highness before the performance, as were the chairmen of the Three Choirs Festival committees. Afterwards Prince Charles spent time talking to performers, including some of the Girl Choristers of Worcester Cathedral (pictured).
