The programme will feature as its main work Sir John Stainer’s "The Crucifixion: A Meditation on the Sacred Passion of the Holy Redeemer". Stainer intended that his piece would be within the scope of most parish church/amateur choirs and it includes five hymns for congregational participation.
The programme also includes an arrangement of "Ave Verum Corpus" by Edward Elgar, the majestic 'O thou, the central orb' by Charles Wood, two of Vaughan Williams' 'Five Mystical Songs - 'Easter' and 'Antiphon' - and two pieces by Howard Goodall - 'The Lord is My Shepherd' (AKA the Vicar of Dibley theme) and 'Lacrymosa: Do not stand at my grave and weep'. We also have a concerto for organ and alto saxophone.
The choral society is conducted by its musical director, Helen Brind, and soloists are Gareth Long (bass), Jon Valender (tenor), who has stepped in at the last moment to replace our advertised tenor, Alison Young (alto saxophone) and Alex Davies (organ).
Tickets, priced at £12 or free for under-16s, are available from Weymouth Pavilion Box Office, Dorchester TIC, Harmony Music, or on the door on the night.
