Elgar and Stanford, rivals in the Edwardian music scene, battle it out in this unusual presentation of choral music

The Sheffield Chorale presents for its Patrons' concert an unusual collection of music composed in the Edwardian era. It is acknowledged that Edward Elgar and Charles Villiers Stanford quarrelled in 1904 and barely spoke to each other, whereas Elgar had the greatest respect for Hubert Parry. It is these three musical giants who composed the music for this concert, providing, in spite of their rivalry, an evening of pleasure and rich British choral music.

Please note: additional parking will be available in King Edward's school car park, across the road from the church.

Tickets are available from tickets@sheffieldchorale.co.uk, on the door, or by calling 07816 062905. Refreshments will be included in the ticket price.
