Cathedral by Night – Messiaen Meditation

Have you ever thought of exploring Belfast Cathedral at night?

On Thursday 23rd January from 7.00 pm–8.00 pm, Matthew Owens (Director of Music, Belfast Cathedral) and Ali Darragh (reader) will perform one of the great works of the early 20th century – Olivier Messiaen’s La Nativité du Seigneur (The Birth of our Lord) in the first of three Messiaen Meditations in 2020.

During the concert, audience members are invited to walk around the vast, darkened spaces of Belfast Cathedral (with the main central space of the Nave cleared of chairs) whilst listening to the music and narration.

Tours will be subject to availability. Come along and experience the Cathedral in a unique light!

Admission: £10.00

Tickets are available from Belfast Cathedral Welcome Desk and at the door as well as online at this link.
