Tatton Singers' annual Singing Days have attracted a great following amongst
singers in the north-west. Two of the most successful (and best-attended)
have been Handel's
Dixit Dominus, (2016) and Vaughan Williams's
A Sea Symphony, (2017). This year we shall be working on an equally
fine piece – Cherubini's
Requiem. In its own time this dramatic setting of the Requiem provoked
very enthusiastic responses: Schumann, Berlioz and Brahms all spoke of
it in glowing terms and Beethoven declared, 'if I were to write a Requiem,
Cherubini's would be my only model,' – praise indeed! Subsequently this
Requiem was performed at Beethoven's own funeral.
We welcome everyone who enjoys singing and discovering new repertoire.
Registration from 9.30am , cost £20 for adults, and £5 for students
Please note there is a 50p charge for online payments (to cover handling costs)
