If you are a fan of modern choral music, or would like to give it a try, then Exeter Choral Society's next charity concert will give you a night to remember.
The star attraction will be Rutter's Requiem (1985), written in memory of his father and his desire that music should be accessible to a wide audience, and as a result of a chance encounter with the original manuscipt of Faure's Requiem in Paris. This work features an arrangement of parts of the Latin Requiem, but also an interpretation of 'Out of the Deep' and 'The Lord is my Shepherd'. It is undoubtedly one of the best loved choral works of the 20th. Century, and takes you on a journey from darkness into light.
The programme also features the Poulenc Gloria (1959), and Elgar's Te Deum(1897)
