The music of ‘Lamb of God’ recounts the events of key events and the final days of the life of Jesus Christ through the eyes of those who loved Him and knew Him best: Peter, John, Thomas, Mary and Martha of Bethany, Mary Magdalene, and His mother Mary.

The concerts will be performed at the beautiful Town Hall, Birmingham on Saturday 30 May at 2pm and 7pm. 

Tickets are available from Tickets are £11/£13 – with groups of 4+ receiving £1 off per ticket.

The participants represent 36 different congregations from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as well as the United States, Latvia, Portugal and a few other countries.  There are also a number of friends and special guests in the sixty-seat orchestra.  The choir itself features over 90 young adult voices.
