    Winter Concert Programme:

    Maurice Duruflé - Requiem

    Bob Chilcott - Songs my heart has taught me

    For our January 2023 concert we are tackling two very contrasting pieces. The first is a beautiful Requiem by the French composer DuruflĂ©. For the  style of music think ‘Faure with sophisticated extras’. The themes of the Requiem are based on chants and will fit really well with the acoustics in All Saints’ Church. It  will sound ethereal and heavenly!

    The second group of pieces is a brand new work by Bob Chilcott: Songs my heart has taught me. It’s a set of four contrasting songs in various styles, one of which is musical theatre. There is tranquil beauty and high energy contrasted in this set.

    The whole calendar timing and time of day of this concert is new for Weston Choral. We decided, for 2022, to dispense with a traditional Christmas concert (that will be back for December 9th 2023!) and place the concert at the end of January 2023 when the Christmas and New Year rush is over! Again, to ring the changes the concert will be in mid-afternoon and will be finalised with a ‘tea and cakes’ session at the end!
