Magna Carta has made a long journey through time, spanning the globe by virtue of its implications and legacy. It has transcended barriers of language and the divisions of cultures and ideologies. 800 years on, the simple ideas of Freedom and Justice have become part of the genetic structure of humankind.

Conductor Stephen Bell and the full forces of the Hallé will be joined by one of the country’s leading brass bands, Foden’s Band from Sandbach. The programme has connections with great historical empires, the Roman and the British, as well as links to famous Manchester events.

AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL, LONDON

Debussy Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune 11'
Vaughan Williams Sancta civitas 35'
Elgar Symphony No. 2 in E flat major 57'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Robin Tritschler | tenor Iain Paterson | baritone Hallé Youth Choir| Trinity Boys Choir | Hallé Choir | London Philharmonic Choir

Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé champion Vaughan Williams’s neglected oratorio Sancta civitas – an ecstatic vision of post-apocalyptic salvation. It’s a piece made for the huge space of the Royal Albert Hall, where its heavenly trumpets and choirs can swell to full force. Described by Elgar’s wife as ‘vast in design and supremely beautiful’, his Second Symphony took a while to win public affection, but is now almost as cherished as Debussy’s evocative tone-poem depicting the lascivious thoughts of a sleepy faun – a work the composer Pierre Boulez has hailed as signalling the beginning of modern music.
