The magnificent Cathedral at Ely, in the heart of fenland, boasts the most impressive early-Norman nave in England. The Norman structure was built between 1083 and 1130, replacing two earlier churches. The great West end with its soaring square tower was completed by of the 12th Century, although a large section on its North side collapsed in the 15th Century. The fine Eastern arm of the Cathedral took shape in the early 13th Century.

In 1322 the great central tower collapsed, and it was then that one of the finest achievements in woodwork was created in the form of the magnificent octagonal lantern over the crossing. The Royal master carpenter at the time was William Hurley, and he devised a clever system of hammer-beam trusses and ring beams to create the spectacular and somehow gravity-defying roof for the lantern, which is still the most impressive part of the Cathedral.

Acoustic Triangle's hour-long lunchtime concert is part of a regular series which takes place directly underneath the great lantern in the middle of the Cathedral. There is no charge for admission.

The trio will be conducting workshops in the Cathedral, for students at nearby King's School, either side of the concert. Members of the public are welcome to come and listen.
