The Berrows Journal reports that at a meeting of the ‘Executive Committee’ it was unanimously resolved that ‘in consequence of the War’ the Three Choirs Festival planned for September 1914 in Worcester would be postponed.

This was the first time in 200 years that the Three Choirs Festival did not take place however the programmes for the Festival were already produced never to be seen until now.

The Three Choirs Festival, held annually since the early eighteenth century and rotating between the three great cathedral cities of Gloucester, Worcester and Hereford, is one of the world’s oldest classical music festivals.

A firm fixture in the British music calendar, the festival is a must-visit for lovers of the great choral works from across Britain, Europe, America and Australasia.
