Come & Sing: Durufle Requiem

Articles 3947 Idg5 JPf25 G UD C S 2020

Sat 18th January, 2020, 10am to 11am

We are delighted to confirm that we will be singing Duruflé's Requiem for our annual Come and Sing 2020.

The Requiem by Maurice Duruflé is one of the most beautiful examples of liturgical music from the 20th century. Strongly influenced by Fauré's famous setting of the same text, it is full of gloriously sing-able lines and magical harmonies.

We have a whole day to master this work of such ethereal, heartrending magnificence. A wonderful work to sing: one or two tricky corners certainly along the way, but plenty of time for us to find our way confidently around those!
As usual, the workshop will be at Trinity Methodist Church Centre in Loughborough and will be from 10am, ending with a 5.30pm performance.
Our workshop leader will, once again, be Charnwood Voices Musical Director, Nicholas Scott-Burt. Our accompanist and organist will be Richard Dunster-Sigtermans .
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL! The cost will be £15 per person and application forms will be available to download from October from our website www.charnwoodvoices.org.uk. You may also obtain them by e-mailing comeandsing@charnwoodvoices.org.uk, from our facebook page and from members of the choir.
This will be a great opportunity to take part in this wonderful piece.

Or come along to the concert on the day to see what we have achieved - doors open at 5.15pm. Entry £5.
