I'm forming a new chamber choir: ‘The Six Centuries Chamber Choir’ – and, just like it says on the tin, we will sing something from each of the centuries from the 16th up to the 21st.
6 Centuries Chamber CHoir
The singing will be interspersed with music from pro instrumentalists, and in addition we will be joined by a poet who will read relevant poems from each century. It’s going to be a really interesting and eclectic mix!
The first concert is on 21 June in London and the programme will be:
Byrd: Sing Joyfully
Monteverdi: “Hor ch'el Ciel e la Terra” from Madrigals book 8
Bach: Motet “Komm, Jesu, Komm” BWV 229
Brahms: Der Abend Op.64.2
Eric Whitacre: Water Night
Peter Fender: How do I love thee / I never saw a moor
Let me know if you would like to be involved. Rehearsals are 11th June (eve), 14th (pm), 18th (eve). I'm particularly looking for men :-)
And please pass this on to any singer friends who might be interested (note that you need to be able to read well).
