On Sunday 8 December, Hereford Cathedral Choir will depart for Italy where they have been invited to sing in Bologna at the invitation of the British Embassy in Rome.

On Monday evening, the choir will sing at a concert at the Church of San Procolo before a reception at the headquarters of the Red Cross of Bologna. The service has been organised by GGI Confidustria Emilia Area Centro.

As a consequence, there are no choral services in the cathedral on Sunday. We are grateful to Robert Green for playing the organ for the Sunday morning Cathedral Eucharist. The choir will return to Hereford on Tuesday 10 December.

The invitation, received through Hereford Cathedral Perpetual Trust, follows their previous collaboration with the Foreign Office, both in Italy and elsewhere.  The evening was realized thanks to the collaboration of GI Confindustria Emilia Romagna, British Embassy Rome and EasyJet.

We will be sharing our visit across social media and the cathedral website!
