Petros Singers Saturday 2 March

Singing Workshop: A Royal Occasion

Join Petros Singers for an afternoon celebrating 400 years’-worth of music written for and performed at the great royal occasions. The workshop will be led by James Vivian – Director of Music at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle – who, as one of the few people to have conducted at a major royal ceremonial event in recent years, and certainly the only person to have conducted at two, is uniquely qualified. James will lead the singers through a selection of music associated with royal weddings, funerals and coronations, including Parry’s I Was Glad and Zadok the Priest by Handel, amongst other favourites. Please see our website for full details.

2-6pm (registration from 1.30pm). St Peter’s Church, Black Lion Lane, Hammersmith, W6 9BE

£20 (concessions and under 28 £15). All tickets much be booked in advance.

Ealing Common Choir Saturday 16 March

Duruflé: Requiem & Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna

Serene and optimistic music to reflect by

Duruflé: Requiem, 1947

Achieved by his use of Gregorian plainsong melodies, Duruflé’s Requiem is more akin to Fauré’s familiar setting in its sense of serene optimism.

Morten Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna, 1997

Lux Aeterna is a five-movement motet using Latin texts from the Requiem Mass to open and close the work, and from the Te Deum, O nata lux, and Veni sancte spiritus in the three central movements. Its contemplative atmosphere has suggested comparisons with the requiems of Fauré and Brahms.

6 for 6.30pm. St Matthew’s Church, North Common Road, Ealing, W5 2QA

Tickets £12 (16 and under free) on the door or via choir members

Petros Singers Saturday 23 March

Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem

With Miriam Allan (soprano), Marcus Farnsworth (baritone), Libby Burgess (keyboard), and Will Vann (keyboard).
