800 years after the laying of Salisbury Cathedral’s foundation stone, Stone Songs will reflect on the skill, vision and dedication that it took to build such a magnificent building, inspired by the ancient chants that have resonated from the stones since the 13th century.
Underpinned by the power of the newly-refurbished Cathedral organ, the 120 voices of the Festival Chorus will explore the acoustic possibilities of the building and reflect on the incredible vision that created it.
The La Folia commissioning of Stone Songs was supported by Fawcetts Chartered Accountants, an anonymous trust, Mr and Mrs J Carvell, Lady Newbigging, Veronica Stewart Arts Trust and two La Folia Friends.
