Rehearsals for singers 11.00am and 2.30pm on the day

Our Summer Singday offers two incredibly tuneful choral works which will have you humming for days afterwards. Fauré’s Requiem is well known – one of the most beautiful settings of the Latin Requiem Mass with the focus very much on forgiveness and redemption rather than retribution and damnation. Less often sung is Mendelssohn’s joyous cantata, the Hymn of Praise; this is a work simply bursting with vitality and joie de vivre, and packed with some of its composer’s best tunes.

Bob Chilcott conducts and our soloists will be Lucy Hall and Elizabeth Karani (sopranos), James Oxley (tenor) and Julien Van Mellaerts (baritone).
