We are delighted to have joined forces with the Genesis Foundation and Durham Cathedral to soundtrack a new light installation designed to celebrate the Durham Year of the Pilgrimage. LIGHT, a work commissioned by the Genesis Foundation from Chris Levine, one of today’s most exciting visual artists, will be amplified with music, also commissioned by the Foundation, from some of the UK's most celebrated contemporary composers, all sung by The Sixteen.

Over the past two decades the Genesis Foundation has established itself as the UK’s foremost commissioner of sacred choral music, engendering some 25 new works, the majority for performance by Harry Christophers and The Sixteen.

To experience LIGHT, visit the Cathedral between 21 March and early December. To find out more, visit Durham Cathedral's website
