Combined concert by the Orlando Singers of Auckland & the Linden Singers of Hawkes Bay. It is 400 years since the death of Shakespeare so to commemorate his life much of the programme uses his texts set to music by such composers as Vaughan Williams, the famous jazz musician Sir George Shearing, Thomas Morley, Edward German and others.

The choirs will sing a number of joint items some of which will showcase the Cathedral organ which is regarded as one of the finest in the country. These include: "I saw the Lord" by Sir John Stainer, "O clap your hands" and "Old Hundredth - All people that on earth do dwell" by Vaughan Williams and "Evening Hymn" by Balfour Gardner.

The Cathedral has a stunning acoustic for choral music so the combined choirs will also sing these works: "Bring us O Lord God" by William Harris, "Resonet in Laudibus" by Jacob Gallus for double choir and the 6 part anthem "Factus est silentum" by the 16th century composer Richard Deering.
