Mozart’s Requiem, completed after his death by Süssmayr, is one of the most popular pieces of sacred choral music with origins shrouded in mystery as no record exists as to who commissioned the work which adds to the Mozart myth. Coupled with Bach’s great Magnificat, we bring you another great masterpiece, written during Bach’s time as Thomaskantor in Leipzig. This setting of the “Song of Mary” is brilliantly crafted and wonderful on the ear.

Malice through the Looking Glass: A Whodunnit in Wonderland

Friday 16 March 7.30pm - 10.00pm

Cathedral Nave

Six months after Alice first tumbled down the rabbit hole, all hell has broken loose in Wonderland – the White Queen is on the rampage, Tweedle Dum isn’t speaking to Tweedle Dee, and Humpty Dumpty is behaving very strangely. Worse still, the White King is filing for divorce, the Mad Hatter isn’t the only one who’s lost his marbles, and the recently crowned Alice has just discovered a dastardly plot to put the Red Queen back on the throne …

Join us for an interactive sleuthing evening in the Cathedral nave, and help to solve the mystery of Malice through the Looking Glass.

11:00Chrism Eucharist for Maundy ThursdayChrism Eucharist with Blessing of the Oils

Clergy and lay ministers come together to renew vows

Gloucester Cathedral will be packed on Thursday 29 March, when clergy and lay ministers from in and around Gloucestershire will gather to take part in a special service to prepare for Easter, led by the Bishop of Gloucester, the Rt Revd Rachel Treweek.

Around 400 clergy and lay ministers will come together for the Maundy Thursday service, where they will process through the Cathedral. They will then renew their vows of ministry. Everyone is welcome to attend this special service.

The name ‘Maundy’ comes from the Latin ‘mandatum’ meaning ‘commandment’. Christians remember Jesus giving his disciples the command to love one another just as he loved them, at the Last Supper. It is for this reason that this day is chosen for clergy and lay ministers to renew their vows.

The service, called the Chrism Eucharist, includes the blessing of holy oils used in well-known church ceremonies. These are: Chrism Oil, which is used at ordination and confirmation services; Catechumens Oil, used at baptisms and Oil of Healing, which is used when ministering to the sick and dying. The clergy will take the blessed oils back to their parishes for use throughout the next year.

The service starts at 11am on Thursday 29 March, the Thursday before Easter Sunday. Christians remember this day for the Last Supper that Jesus and his disciples shared on the night before he was crucified. During this meal he washed their feet and also gave them bread and wine, an act that established the service now known as the Eucharist. On the night of Maundy Thursday he was also betrayed by Judas in the Garden of Gethsemene, as he was handed over to the authorities, who put him to death on Good Friday.

All are welcome to attend the service. There will be opportunities for photography, particularly of the procession of clergy and lay ministers.
