21 Sep 2019 10:30-16:30 - Caversham Heights Methodist Church, Highmoor Road, Reading RG4 7BG

Come and sing Rachmaninov’s Vespers with Reading Bach Choir

Saturday, 21 September 2019 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.
Caversham Heights Methodist Church, RG4 7BG

The Vespers is a haunting, reflective and deeply moving work expressing the composer’s deep and very personal religious faith. A wonderful piece to sing, it is imaginatively scored for voices, has a wide dynamic range, and important melodic lines for all parts. We will be singing a selection from the 15 movements. To help us better understand the Vespers and its place in the liturgy, expert Tatiana Soloviova will give brief explanations of aspects of the service.

Following the day’s rehearsals there will be an informal performance at 4 pm. Non-singing guests are welcome to attend.

The charge for the day will be £20 (£10 for under 25s) a head which includes tea and coffee throughout the day. Please make your own arrangements for lunch. You can pay by cheque or by bank transfer.
We will be using the Musica Russica edition of the Mass. If you need to hire the music that will be an additional £2 (payable in advance), and if you would like it in advance, the postage will be £3 (payable in advance).
