Brahms' German Requiem was the focus our November concert, a more intimate version than is usually heard, accompanied by a piano duet. Other composers' responses to some of the texts were also explored.
Our Christmas concerts were at Patchings Art Centre as usual and, for the second time, at the West Bridgford Methodist Church on behalf of 'Framework'.
January's Come and Sing/Play and our March concert Baroque Fest featured Biber's Vespers, Padilla's Missa Ego Flos Campi and Schütz' Psalm 24.
... the masterly performance of the Sinfonia Chorale and the instrumentalists. Congratulations on that!
... I thought the choir performed excellently.
... a beautiful musical experience.
Later in the spring we commemorated Benjamin Britten's centenary with his dramatic and heartfelt dedication to the Red Cross, the Cantata Misericordium, together with other works by Britten and by Poulenc.
