Brahms German Requiem

In the new year we will be rehearsing Brahms   ‘German Requiem’ (sung in English), so if you are unfamiliar with this superb music, please listen to it a few times in the next few months.  There are many superb orchestral recordings in German from which to take your pick.  However, the one below is to a recording in English with piano accompaniment.  The simplicity of the arrangement makes it very useful for personal practice. It’s also available on ITunes store (£6.99) and Spotify. 

Recordings from our concert in 2000 now available on this website

In the year 2000 we held a special concert to celebrate over 100 years of singing as a choir. The concert included:

  • Vivaldi’s Gloria
  • John Bawden’s “Down Yonder Green Valley”, a set of popular folk tunes arranged especially for us by him.
  • Michael Hurd’s “Five Songs of Praise”, commissioned from him by us as a centenary piece.
