Come and sing John Rutter’s Requiem with the Southport Bach Choir and our new Director of Music, Marc Murray.
Emmanuel Church, Southport, Saturday, 4 February 2017, 10.00 – 5.00.
The Requiem is one of Rutter’s most popular works and has a lyrical quality that appeals to both singers and audiences. The SBC has enjoyed singing several of his carols this Christmas and in Christmases past, but it is many years since we last sang the Requiem. We are looking forward to renewing our acquaintance with this work, before we start rehearsing for his latest big choral piece, The Gift of Life, which we shall be performing in our concert at Holy Trinity, Southport on Saturday, 1 April 2017.
You don’t have to be a marvellous sight-reader to come and sing with us on 4 February, but it would probably add to your enjoyment of the day if you can read music. A sandwich lunch will be provided for those who would like it, and we have a reputation for offering a good selection of cakes!
If you would like to join us please let us know by 1 February at the latest. For further details and application form click here: Come & Sing.
