Special Summer Concerts
The choir of Christ’s College Cambridge will be in Victoria, in concert at St John’s, on July 6th. This will be a great opportunity to hear a fine choir from the English college tradition – particularly interesting, I think, for the older choristers (and alumni) of the VCC (the age range of the members of Christ’s College choir is about 19 – 23; they are all undergraduates at Cambridge University, studying toward various degrees, but performing several times per week in the college chapel).
The repertoire they’re singing on tour includes Parry’s Songs of Farewell, Britten’s Hymn to St Cecilia, Howells’ Requiem and the Kodaly Missa Brevis.
There’s a link to the choir’s website here: http://www.christs.cam.ac.uk/college-life/chapel-and-choir/choir/about/ (also connects to sample tracks).
Additionally, David is looking for billets to take a chorister or two for the night of July 6th – Please let David ( [email protected]) know if you can help.
