 Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem

The link between Coventry Cathedral and the arts can be traced back throughout history, but a most significant moment being the creation and performance of Britten’s War Requiem in 1962 for the consecration of the New Cathedral.

On 14 November 2018, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is joined by Coventry Cathedral Chorus, Brighton Festival Chorus & Coventry Cathedral Choristers to perform this large-scale work. Conducted by Kerry Beaumont, Simon Over, and Paul Leddington Wright.

 Sign up your church for your Diocesan Centenary Tree

As part of the Diocesan Centenary, the DEG is organising The Centenary Tree Project, in which it is proposed that a tree will be planted to commemorate the Centenary in every churchyard and in the grounds of each Church of England School.

To date, you will still get your first choice, so do not spend time agonising on which other trees to add. The saplings will be delivered in early November so apply soon. The application process is simple and you do not have to apply for a Faculty for the plaque; it will be included in your List B Application.

For more information please see the attached leaflet and click the link below.
