Virtual World Premiere of Morgan Pochin's The Salisbury Anthem

Jun. 01, 2020

Launched on May 31, The Salisbury Anthem is a virtual choir project written by Faber Music composers Morgan Pochin and performed by the Salisbury Cathedral Choir. The work was to be heard for the first time in Salisbury Cathedral on its Foundation Day (April 28), but due to social distancing requirements, The Salisbury Anthem has been brilliantly reimagined as a virtual choir performance, led by the Cathedral Choir (all singing remotely) with Salisbury Cathedral Director of Music, David Halls, conducting (also remotely). The Salisbury Anthem marks the 800th anniversary of the laying of the first stone of Salisbury Cathedral. Setting a poem by Henry d'Avanches, written at the time that the Cathedral was originally built, James Morgan and Juliette Pochin's new anthem was premiered online by a choir of hundreds of voices. The digital score of The Salisbury Anthem can be purchased here.  To learn more about the project, click here.
