Oil Fountain Fitzhardinge Consort Choir Concert

A night celebrating the environment and eco-activism through art! Music and sculpture come together for a themed evening delving into our world, the fragile ecosystem, the future of our planet, and our connection with nature.

Join The Fitzhardinge Consort for a night of spectacular music curated exclusively to accompany the Oil Fountain artwork being displayed in Bristol Cathedral.

Espensen Spirit will be making bespoke nature-themed cocktails before the concert and during the interval.

Everyone will have the chance to see the Oil Fountain before and after the concert, plus during the interval. The Oil Fountain has been featured by BBC News, ITV, The Telegraph and more.

The Fitzhardinge Consort choir sings regularly across the region to great critical acclaim and has quickly become known for its exciting and original interpretations of Renaissance and Baroque music, as well as new works of living composers.

Alongside classics including three pieces from Haydn’s Creation (The Heavens are Telling the Glory of God, Awake the Harp and Sing the Lord ye voices all), Cipriano de Rore’s Descendi in hortum meum and John Ireland’s The Hills, enjoy a new composition by Pierre Jones, a talented A Level student from Bristol Cathedral Choir School, Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence.

What to expect:

  • Live choir music from the critically acclaimed Fitzhardinge Consort choir
  • See the Oil Fountain installation
