THINGS TO COME –
WALTHAM SINGERS MUSIC FOR LENT
Among the most consistently impressive of the local choral societies, Waltham Singers, under Andrew Fardell, increasingly look beyond their parish church, with concerts in Chelmsford Cathedral and overseas touring.
This March they are singing in King Edward VI School: two cornerstones of the choral repertoire, Allegri's Miserere and Fauré's Requiem. Plus the première of a new commission from Essex composer Alan Bullard - Psalmos Penitentiales, funded by a bequest to the choir from Peter Andrews, much missed critic and patron of the arts, my predecessor at the Chelmsford Weekly News.
They will be joined, amongst others, by Laurence Lyndon Jones from Chelmsford Cathedral, Ensemble OrQuesta and BBC Chorister of the year Angus Benton.
The concert is on March 18 at 7.30 pm in King Edward VI School.
Tickets from James Dace, the choir's website, or on the door.
