We are delighted to confirm that we will be singing Duruflé's Requiem for our annual Come and Sing.
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 .
This will be a great opportunity to take part in this wonderful piece.
