Abbey Dore Week 20-26th July 2014

The English Choral Experience Week, now moving into its 8th year, traditionally takes place during the third week of July within the former Cistercian Dore Abbey in Herefordshire's Golden Valley. Inclusive of fine dining, evening events, an arts exhibition and the chance to extend your creative skills beyond that of singing, it is a time to relax and enjoy the bonhomie that is a part of every good choral experience.

The 2014 course will celebrate the 50th anniversary of George Dysonís death and launch of the publication of Paulís biography of the composer with Dyson's, Nebuchadnezzar as the centre-piece of the course. The full repertoire will be:

Weelkes Hosanna to the Son of David
Dering Factum est Silentium
Mundy O Lord the Maker
Hemson The Prayer of this Place
(1986, written for Abbey Dore, but this will be its first performance)
Armstrong Gibbs Five Elizabethan Lyrics
Dyson Nebuchadnezzar
Palestrina Missa Brevis
