    World-renowned ensemble The Sixteen, conducted by Harry Christophers, present a beautifully curated programme contrasting the sacred and secular work of the two 16th-century composers William Cornysh (father and son), and one of the 20th-century’s great masters of vocal music, Benjamin Britten.

    Dear Fellow Singers,
     
    I would like to let you know about an exciting event on Good Friday and to encourage you to come along.
     
    In the past it has been a well supported and fun event to start the Easter weekend.
     
    My choir (All Saints' Parish Church choir) are putting on a 'Bring and Sing' version of Faure's Requiem on Good Friday 30th March 2018.  In addition we will also be singing the glorious Crucifixus by Lotti.  The venue is All Saints Parish Church, Leamington Spa.  Registration is from 3:30pm, rehearsal 4pm, performance 6:30pm. £8.50 singers (to include refreshments).  Copies of the music are available to hire on the door for £1.50, or you can bring your own if you have one (hence the ‘bring and sing’ idea).  Admission for the audience for the concert is free.  If possible singers are asked to wear black.
     
    If you would like more information you could look at the following website: http://www.allsaintschurchleam ington.org.uk/bring--sing- concert---good-friday.html

    Many thanks and I look forward to meeting some of you in due course.
     
    Kind regards,
