The Cry at St. Paul's Cathedral

Invitation to a World Premiere at St Paul's Cathedral for Save the Children

You are warmly invited to the premiere of The Cry: A Requiem for the Lost Child which will take place in St Paul's Cathedral at 6pm on Sunday 16 November 2008 in aid of Save the Children.

Composed by Adrian Snell and directed by David Drummond, The Cry is a spectacular and moving musical production that remembers children who've lost their lives or childhood because of warfare, armed conflict or ethnic cleansing. The lead vocalists are Niamh Perry (BBC1's I'd Do Anything) and opera star Mark Stone. They'll be joined by violinist Jeanine Thorpe (BBC2's Classical Star and Maestro), Adrian Snell, the London Oriana Choir, the London Oratory School Schola, keyboard player Dave Bainbridge (Iona) and a host of other talented singers and musicians. The performance will be introduced by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.

The Cry features a rap specially recorded for the premiere by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who says 'I'm delighted to be involved as a rapper for the premiere of The Cry, which gives these often forgotten victims of wars a voice that will lift the roof off St Paul's Cathedral!'

Admission is free, but by ticket only. Tickets can be obtained by sending a stamped addressed envelope, stating how many you require, to:

The Cry, The Chapter House, St Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD
