Music for Remembrance and Requiem Mass

We were delighted when we were invited to join forces with the Livinuskoor from Ghent in Belgium for a concert to mark the centenary of the 1918 Armistice. Ghent was in the front line of the war and hearing both choirs singing together will be a truly moving experience. The concert in St Mary’s on 3rd November will be a free lunchtime recital at 1pm, with a retiring collection.

Both choirs will sing individually and together. A central feature will be a section on the Christmas Truce, with poetry and writings from the period. Expect hairs to rise on the back of your neck as a solo voice starts Silent Night from somewhere in the church, to be joined by more singing this famous carol in many different languages.

On Sunday 4th November, at 6pm, there is an opportunity to hear the complete Requiem Mass by John Rutter. This is a more formal moment for remembrance and reflection on the lost of two world wars and, more personally, to remember our own departed loved ones.

On Saturday 10th November, the eve of Armistice Day, St Mary’s Choir join the Livinuskoor to repeat the concert in Ghent.
