St George’s Chapel is opening its doors for a very special lunchtime recital, which will be held at 1.10pm on Thursday, September 25.

Entry is free – but the audience is limited to just 300 and can only be collected on the day.

The concert provides a chance for local people and visitors alike to hear a 50 minute recital by The Choir of St George’s Chapel free of charge, with English music commemorating the Centenary of the First World War.

The programme includes Britten’s Te Deum in C, Howells’ Psalm Prelude Set 1 and Elgar’s For The Fallen. Gerald Finzi’s Lo, The Full Final Sacrifice concludes the afternoon concert.

Those wishing to attend the concert can obtain a free ticket in the Groups Area of the Windsor Castle Admission Centre from 12:15 on the day of the concert. Tickets cannot be reserved in advance, but there will be up to 300 available on the day.

Those attending may wish to purchase a Castle Entrance ticket as well, or use their Advantage Card if they are a Royal Borough resident, to visit other parts of the Castle.

Martin Denny, Windsor Festival Director said: “We are delighted to be partnering with St George’s Chapel as part of this year’s Festival. The Lunchtime Recital allows the community to experience some of the finest music by the Chapel’s Choir first hand and promises to be an enchanting event.”
