Chapel Choir joins Choral Society to sing Brahms

Sunday 22nd April 2018, Ardingly College Chapel

The German Requiem by Brahms is well-known for the beauty of its choral writing and also its highly dramatic movements. Most remarkable for its intensity is the second movement ‘Behold All Flesh is as the Grass‘, while ‘How lovely are Thy Dwellings Fair‘ is surely outstanding for the beauty of the vocal lines and the glorious harmonies that Brahms explores.

Ardingly Choral Society will be performing this Requiem on Sunday 22nd April in the magical atmosphere of Ardingly College Chapel, in conjunction with their orchestral partners Mid-Sussex Sinfonia with whom they have collaborated for many years.

A new departure for the Choral Society is that Ardingly College Chapel Choir will be joining in the occasion and their youthful voices will be most welcome in further enhancing the performance.The recently appointed Director of Music, Richard Stafford, specifically asked to bring the pupils of the college into this event for the musical experience which it will certainly be.

The soloists will be the international baritone Robert Davies who has sung in a number of the Society‘s recent performances. Also of special interest is the soprano soloist, Olivia Bell, who is a former music scholar from the college and is making a fine career as a solo performer.

Tickets are now available from Carousel Music 01444 417654, M Kershaw 01825 791241 or online at www.ardinglychoralsociety.org.uk
