Come and SING! BRAHMS' Songs of Lamentation and Destiny. IN ENGLISH.

Saturday 25th January 2020 from 10am to 5.30pm at Leicester Grammar School, Great Glen, Leicester, LE8 9FL.

Our Come and Sing day is an occasion to sing for the joy of singing, with our friendly choir and under the baton of our inspirational and encouraging Music Director, Richard Laing. Whether you join us on this popular day just once a year, or sing regularly, the day is for you. Book your place now! Bring your audience for the late afternoon performance!

We will be singing Brahms’ Nänie (Song of Lamentation) and Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny), in English. Richard has selected these fascinating pieces, not often sung in the choral repertoire, to give us the opportunity of singing something perhaps for the first time, but with the familiarity of a known composer. 

Richard says: “Nänie, a setting of a poem by Schiller, is sometimes known as the ‘Song of Lamentation’, but don’t let the title put you off – this is one of the most beautiful and comforting of Brahms’ choral works, almost a miniature German Requiem. We are pairing this with the intensely dramatic Schicksalslied, or ‘Song of Destiny’, which contains some of Brahms’ most ravishing music. “
