Not very long now to our Spring concerts on 23rd/24th March.
The March concerts feature Faure's much-loved 'Requiem' and Mozart's 'Coronation Mass' We're really enjoying singing the Faure at rehearsal. It is a really beautiful piece to sing - especially the final 'In paradisum', which ends the piece, almost like a lullaby. Completely contrasted by the joyous Mozart piece, which is actually a mass in C, but called 'Coronation' to distinguish it from the others. See the panel further down for more information about the perfomance and you can find out about our soloists here.
Our Summer Concert however is going to be something very special indeed. We are delighted to perform Suter's exhilerating 'Le Laudi' once more and to welcome back Tim Carney (all the way from Hawaii) to share conducting duties. We're also reuniting some of the soloists who were present at our marvellous first peformance. More information on this event will be featured on the website throughout the year - click on the 'Le Laudi' page link.
Thanks to the generosity of our audiences, we raised £600 for the East Anglia Air Ambulance in our retiring collections. Thank you everyone who contributed. We have some recordings from that concert: the 'Gloria' from the Dvorak 'Organ Mass' and the two Bruckner motets from our concert. You can find them here.
