Chetham’s original medieval buildings began as a college for the priests of Manchester Cathedral, and the relationship continues with the Cathedral’s choristers, who undertake their academic and instrumental studies at Chetham’s.

The Easter period is the pinnacle of the choristers’ year, and for Good Friday in 2019 they form a central part of the choir for Heinrich Schütz’ celebrated Musikalische Exequien of 1636. Beneath the dramatic vaulted roof of Manchester Cathedral, this is a compelling and virtuosic commemoration, uniting human voice and organ in a pure and many-layered expression of faith, love and redemption.
