Felling Male Voice Choir were invited to participate in the 900th Anniversary Celebrations in Durham Cathedral.

The event held in October 1993 was organised by the National Association of Choirs. 450 singers were in the Cathedral representing 25 choirs. Each group of choirs gave a programme of eight pieces.

The Ladies, Mixed and Male Choirs then joined together to sing the first performance of “Durham Canticle”, specially commissioned for the occasion. John Rutter was the writer and guest conductor.
