We are delighted to confirm that we will be singing Duruflé's Requiem for our annual Come and Sing which will be on SATURDAY JANUARY 18TH 2020. (please note that this is the third Saturday of the new year and not the second as has been in the past).

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 .

BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL! The cost will be £15 per person and application forms will be available to download from October from this website page. You may also obtain them by e-mailing, from our facebook page and from members of the choir.

This will be a great opportunity to take part in this wonderful piece.

Held in January, these are one day workshops that have been attracting well over 100 singers of varying musical ability to come together from all over the East Midlands to rehearse and perform well known musical works. The workshop is a whole day event, and the aim is to learn as much of the work as we can, and to bring it to the highest possible standard in the limited time. It is open to all singers, whether you sing regularly with a choir or not. Many of the singers who come will not have sung the music before. It does help if you are able to read music to some degree and have listened to the piece before the day, but there are always some singers present who have done the piece before and lead the way. The day is hard work but great fun and very rewarding. We finish the afternoon with an informal performance to amaze our audience of friends and family with what we have achieved during the day.
