The Cumbria Rural Choirs 2019 Concert took place in Carlisle Cathedral on 23rd March, when Wigton Choral Society joined with Keswick Choral Society, Ullswater Choir (Penrith) and independent singers in Cumbria Rural Choirs, together with professional soloists and the instrumental accompaniment of the British Sinfonietta, for the performance of two major works:

  • The seven last words of Christ (German: Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze), by Joseph Haydn
  • Requiem in D minor, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The audience filled the Cathedral and the concert was very well-received. For a full review, please see the Cumbria Rural Choirs website.
