‘African Sanctus’

Saturday 4th April 2020, 7:30 pm, Ely Cathedral.

Our next concert in Ely will be ‘African Sanctus’  by David Fanshawe.

Tickets will be available from 3rd February 2020 online or at the Ely Cathedral Box Office  01353 660349 and at www.elycathedral.org/events.

African Sanctus is a wonderful setting of the Latin Mass harmonised with traditional African music collected by the legendary composer David Fanshawe on his many journeys up the River Nile.  He wanted to create a work that would praise God by combining traditional African music with western music of his own composition.

The ‘pop’ rhythms and electric instruments add an extra layer above the recorded tribal music. The programme is completed by performances by the percussion quartet and a group of African songs sung by Ely Youth Choir.

Tickets will be available online here from 3rd February 2020 or at the Ely Cathedral Box Office 01353 660349 and at www.elycathedral.org/events.
