The choir at St Marys Church Felpham, with guests from Edwin James Festival Choir, sings LIVERPOOL ORATORIO (time TBC)
Huge congratulations go to Musical Director James Rushman, Chris Allen, the choir, the orchestra and soloists Lorna (Soprano), Derek (Baritone) and Katharine (Alto) on a 10/10 performance at the Good Friday concert. Everybody has worked extremely hard since the beginning of the year rehearsing Karl Jenkins’ Requiem and John Rutter’s Mass of the Children which is considered testing works in language and music ability.
As well as Latin, Requiem’s movements are interspersed with haiku poems (Japanese) which resulted in moving expressions of spirituality yet still offered a link appropriate to today’s modern world.
Mass of the Children was an ideal companion to perform alongside the Requiem with its setting in the Latin Missa Brevis. It covers a complete day from waking to sleeping together with other moods and texts appearing like landmarks in the day.
The end result was a blend of voices and instruments that was truly delicious and yet at the same time, the musical arrangement ensured a reflective Good Friday feeling.
The concert supported the charity Crossroads Care South Central in Climping and was performed in memory of our dear friends Joe Costa, David Fido and Basil Cooper.
