Coventry Cathedral hosts 'message of hope' concert

Coventry Cathedral hosted a performance of Brahms' German Requiem ahead of Remembrance Day.

Saint Michael's Singers, The Parliament Choir, and The Southbank Sinfonia performed on Saturday evening.

The Brahms piece is said to be a message of hope as people remember those lost through the tragedy of war.

The concert was part of the city's Peace Festival ahead of Remembrance Day and also part of the cathedral's 50th anniversary celebrations.

The composition was written and composed between 1865 and 1868 by Johannes Brahms to help grieve over the death of his mother, and his close friend Robert Schumann.
