2017 - 2018 Season

Rehearsals started back in September, for an exciting range of music:

Nelson Mass
Missa Beati Purificationes
é's Requiem
Vierne's Mass for Choir and TWO Organs
Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle

Never heard of Zelenka? He's contemporary with Bach, but sounds more like Haydn. This is a fantastic work, and probably only the second time it will have been performed in this country, because the only copies available came from the Czech choir who have recorded the work: Ensemble Inégal - unfortunately now, that's in the past! And it was great - the choir really thrived learning the work and the audience enjoyed the concert.

In the Spring we have Faur
é's charming Requiem and Vierne's stunning Mass for Choir and two Organs - and perhaps one or two little surprises

And in the summer, Rossini's
Petite Messe Solennelle is accompanied by the unusual combination of piano and harmonium
