Somerset Choral Society Programme for 2018/19 Season

This season we are performing two very different concerts and are planning another “Come & Sing” workshop. We start on 24th November with a Candlelit Concert of Advent and Christmas music from the Carols for Choirs White Book and the Robert Chilcott arrangement of “On Christmas Night”. The Concert will be the Choir singing exclusively and any solo work will be provided by choir members plus some readings also delivered by choir members.

The committee are planning a “Come & Sing” workshop in March/April 2019; Ed has suggested Vaughan Williams’ “O Clap Your Hands” and “Antiphon” which is the last movement of the “Five Mystical Songs” proposed for the May concert.

In contrast, our Spring 2019 Concert in May will be part of the Wedmore Arts festival and will feature the young violinist Poppy McGhee. The proposed programme includes Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs and The Lark Ascending (Solo Violin & Lochrian Ensemble), Brahms Geistliches Lied and How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings (Requiem), two movements from Faure Requiem (Libera Me and Sanctus) and a solo repertoire from Poppy.
