Norwich artist Beverley Gene Coraldean has created a new work of art featuring Norwich Cathedral to celebrate a concert that will be held in the historic venue in January.
The illustration, which depicts the cathedral seen through the arches of the cloisters, has been created for the poster and flyer for The Voice Project's Between Stars performance.
The concert is the first part of the Norwich-based choir's ambitious choral project, The Arms of Sleep, which will see a number of performance pieces created that explore ideas around sleeping and waking.
Ms Coraldean, who was commissioned by The Voice Project to create the new artwork, said: 'I spoke to Jonathan and Sian (Jonathan Baker and Sian Croose, The Voice Project's co-directors) about the piece they were creating, which is about sleep, then tried to make an illustration that had a dreamlike quality.
'I tried to give the impression of peeking through the darkness into the light beyond.'

A limited number of prints of the pen and ink artwork are available to buy, and profits from the sale of the prints will go towards The Voice Project's education work and also support bursaries for future choir members.
The Voice Project Choir, featuring about 150 singers, will perform Between Stars in Norwich Cathedral on January 21 at 7pm and 9pm.
