Sat 19 Jan - Come and Sing
Come-and-sing Victoria Requiem in Holy Apostles Church, Charlton Kings.
Come and indulge yourself in the glorious Requiem by Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611). Victoria was a Spanish composer in 16th century Spain and part of the counter-reformation. His Requiem, written for six parts, is full of refined but passionate conviction: just wonderful Renaissance music to wrap yourself in.
Our come-and-sing day has two parts:
- 10am-4pm we rehearse the Requiem under the fine direction of Ben Sawyer. Tea, coffee and good company are all provided. This part of the day is now fully-booked.
- 5pm a free concert for all comers, with home-made cake available from 4.30 onwards. Bring your family to hear what we have made of this great music. This part of the day is open to all: just turn up!
We look forward to seeing you there!
