Cross of Christ

PlamCrossGood Friday 3rd April 2015 at 7.00

A devotion for congregation and choir. The selection of music that has moved generations of church-goers continues to inspire today, perfectly contrasted with Bible readings and highlighted by choral anthems. A truly beautiful and expressive service for Good Friday.

Sheffield Chorale (Music Festival 2014)

Saturday 27th September at 7.30 p.m.


[This event forms part of our Music Festival for 2014]


The choir was founded in 1974 by James Kirkwood, head of music at Thornbridge School in Sheffield as the Radio Sheffield Choir and is now a 50 strong mixed choir with a reputation for high quality and an extensive range and repertoire, conducted by Neil Taylor, Director of Music at Sheffield Cathedral. This year in 2014 it is celebrating its 40th Anniversary.


The Radio Sheffield Choir quickly gained a reputation for singing music that the man and woman in the street enjoyed. The choir was featured on Radios 2, 3 and 4, including two very successful performances on the programme, ‘Glamorous Nights’ on Radio 2. In 1984, after ten years of working with Radio Sheffield, the choir changed its name to The Sheffield Chorale, increased its membership through audition, and took on board large choral works with orchestra.


The choir has raised many thousands of pounds for local and national charities through many of its performances, of which its main one, the annual Festival of Lessons and Carols at St. John’s Church, Ranmoor, has always remained a popular and well-attended event.


They will be demonstrating their versatility with a wide range of music, from Palestrina to more contemporary and popular items.

Saturday, 27th September at 1.00 pm


[This event forms part of our Music Festival for 2014]


2010 saw the restoration of the magnificent Father Willis organ in Wentworth Church. This concert continues the celebration of the completion of this wonderful instrument. Darius performed magnificently for us in 2013 and we are delighted that he is willing to return in 2014.


Darius Battiwalla began his musical training in London. He moved North when he was appointed Organ Scholar to Leeds University in 1984, where he studied organ with Graham Barber and piano with Martin Roscoe. After graduating with first-class honours, he studied at the Royal Northern College of Music where he gained performance diplomas in organ and piano accompaniment.


During his time at the RNCM, Darius was awarded the prize for best lieder accompanist by Brigitte Fassbender, and was the only student to be awarded concerto appearances on both organ and piano. He has since been working as a freelance pianist and organist and is musical director of the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus. He has played with the Hallé, BBC Philharmonic, the Orchestra of Opera North and the Northern Sinfonia. He plays in chamber groups with members of the BBC Philharmonic, Opera North and the Goldberg Ensemble, with whom he has appeared in the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.
