A site-specific commission to mark the 60th anniversary of Coventry Cathedral will receive its world premiere on Thursday 27 January, with two additional performances taking place on the 28th & 29th.

A collaboration between Coventry Cathedral and Coventry City of Culture Trust, Ghosts In The Ruins will explore contemporary ideas of peace and reconciliation. 

The commission is a response to Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece, War Requiem, which premiered at the cathedral in May 1962 as part of the Coventry Festival. 

The new work has been created by Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement recipient Nitin Sawhney CBE and the people of Coventry. It will be presented in the Cathedral and the Cathedral Ruins.
