Holy Apostles, Cheltenham

 

Enjoy an opportunity to sing with Cheltenham Bach Choir at our annual Come and Sing event, led by our Director of Music, David Crown.


This year we will be singing the Fauré Requiem, one of the most beautiful settings of the Latin Requiem Mass. With its focus on forgiveness and redemption, the Requiem is justifiably popular and has been a favourite choice on BBC Radio 4's 'Desert Island Discs' for among others, Darcy Bussell, Roald Dahl and Bill Bailey.


The seven movements contain some of the composer’s most beautiful music, of which the Pie Jesu is arguably the most famous.

 

Our Come and Sing events are friendly and welcoming. They offer the opportunity to share a day of wonderful music making, learn more about the choir and sample some of the legendary CBC home baking!

Is Verdi’s Requiem a sacred work, an opera in disguise or both?

 

Come and judge for yourself at our concert on Saturday 10 November at Cheltenham Town Hall.

 

Verdi’s setting of the Latin Requiem Mass began as a memorial to Rossini and many thought it too dramatic for performance in church. This sacred masterpiece speaks of heaven and hell, fire and earth, darkness and light in music that is both terrifying and a sublime hymn of praise to God.
