Chichester Singers offer classic and contemporary

30/10/2018

Phil Hewitt writes:

The Chichester Singers mark the centenary of the armistice which ended the First World War with a concert combining classic and contemporary in Chichester Cathedral on Saturday, November 3.

Under the title “Lest We Forget”, they will offer Ron Corp’s And All the Trumpets Sounded and Brahms’ Requiem. Musical director Jonathan Willcocks said: “To mark the centenary, we are combining one of the great works of the choral repertoire with a very dramatic contemporary piece. We were planning the concert with the centenary of the armistice in mind, and the choir were very keen to perform Brahms’ Requiem again.
