Saturday 1st April 2017, 7:30 – Bristol Cathedral
With the Bristol Bach Choir
Celebrate 21st Century Passion
A Handful of Singers is joining with the Bristol Bach Choir in their 50th year to perform Sir James Macmillan’s St Luke’s Passion in Bristol Cathedral. An unforgettable evening of passion, power and poignancy is guaranteed, as the two choirs are joined by youth choir of the Red Maids’ School – who sing the words of Christ, and the ever brilliant Bristol Ensemble.
The Bristol Ensemble will also perform Barber’s Adagio for strings, and the Bristol Bath Choir will complete the programme with Tallis’ Lamentations of Jeremiah.
Tickets will be £5-22, available from the choirs (07885 509813 and 0117 2140721), email email@example.com and on the door.
Our 2017 programme is now well advanced and can be found here.
A Handful of Singers, Bath’s highly acclaimed chamber choir of 24 voices, has been performing in and around Bath since its inception in 2002.
The choir is directed by its conductor Christopher Finch, winner of the 2010 BBC Choir of the Year. Under his direction, A Handful of Singers has developed a wide repertoire of music, classical and contemporary, serious and not too serious, and has gained an enviable reputation for the quality and vibrancy of its performances. The choir has, at the moment, spaces for soprano and alto singers (see the joining page for details).
And the choir has released its debut album: do listen to the following sample of excerpts from the CD. The CD may be purchased through members of the choir, by phone – 01225 311850, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
