A candlelit concert of beautiful choral voices celebrating the 20 year anniversary of Christian Forshaw's much lauded album 'Sanctuary'.

Christian Forshaw’s album Sanctuary - an exquisite exploration of sacred music, blending saxophone, organ and voice with original composition - has become a much-loved classical hit, regularly featuring on national radio. In our beautiful candlelit church venue, with its excellent acoustics and stunningly restored organ, we are honoured to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of this piece with Christian and his handpicked selection of choral voices.
