Come & Sing

Friday, 19th April 2019 : 4.30pm


The Cranmer Company of Singers and Musical Director Deborah Davies are hosting another charity Come & Sing. Mozart 'Requiem' on Good Friday 19th April at Bottesford Parish Church. This popular event, where time and talents are freely given, raised a record £1,908 in 2017 then £1,400 in 2018, so bring your voice, bring a friend, have a good time and see how much we can raise in 2019. The Guardian describes it as uniquely breathtaking music that shows us pain, lament and fleeting serenity. All who sing it feel the intensity of the score and few can help wondering about the chilling mystery around its composition. The stories fuelled the famous play and film Amadeus. Rehearsal starts 4.30pm (please arrive earlier), charity performance at 7.30pm. Local Soloists will be: Rachel Cropley, Sarah Morris, Colin Reed and Geoff Harbach, with Organist Paul Hayward and Conductor Deborah Davies. All welcome - £6/8/10 to sing, tiered as we ask you to select the amount you wish to give. Donations on door from audience. Singers please book your place by contacting Anny:  annyjones@me.com or 07415 512729. Music provided if required. Singers – if you wish, bring a picnic supper to have between rehearsal and performance. Sober dress please: Men in Suit and tie, Ladies sober Sunday best. Money raised will go to the charity – Tearfund Yemen Crisis Appeal. Come and Sing, or Come & Listen, you will be made very welcome.
