Bringing their 2017/18 season to a close on the 7 July, Cambridge Philharmonic perform Mahler's titanic 8th Symphony in the breath-taking surroundings of Ely Cathedral. Written for an enlarged orchestra, eight soloists and a full three choirs, Mahler's greatest work was produced in only two months during the most intensely creative period of the composer's life. It is an extraordinary piece of music encompassing settings of the Latin text 'Veni, Creator Spiritus' and the final section of Goethe's Faust in a triumphant affirmation of redemption, life and love.
