Choir concert

The choir of St Mary’s will be holding a concert on 17 June at 7.30 pm in the church. We will be singing Mozart’s Requiem and a variety of choral pieces. Mozart was a well-known composer from the 18th century, in the classical period. Mozart’s Requiem is an exciting piece of music set to the standard Requiem words. Although it was mainly written by him, one of his students completed it, as Mozart died before he could finish it.

All of the other music that we will be singing is from the Anglican choral tradition, including some pieces by Stanford. We will be singing a few pieces by him: Beati Quorum Via, which is a calm and reflective piece, contrasted by his Te Deum and Jubilate, which are very joyful and uplifting pieces. There will be a range of music, all of which is really good. We would be delighted if you could come as I’m sure you would enjoy the music. Refreshments will be available during the interval.

Proceeds will be used to purchase new music for the choir and to support Bowdon Youth Festival.
