The Cathedral's Merbecke Choir will be joined by the Monteverdi String Band and a fantastic selection of soloists.  William Balkwill as Evangelist and Juliet Fraser, Tim Travers-Brown, Toby Ward and Christopher Webb in a performance of Bach's St John Passion. 

Conducted by Emily Elias.

In 2003, Southwark Cathedral founded the Merbecke Choir to be a place for boys and girls who had left the Cathedral Choirs to explore a wide range of repertoire under expert tuition. The choir has grown since then and has a broad mix of ages and backgrounds, though former Cathedral choristers remain very welcome.

The choir is mostly made up of people in their twenties and thirties, who meet to rehearse every Tuesday in term time. It is a regular contributor to the liturgy at Southwark Cathedral, notably at the monthly service of Compline and Eucharistic Devotions. It also performs regular concerts, usually three a year, has toured abroad and in the UK and has released a CD, Under the Shadow of Thy Wings.
