DAWLISH Choral Society will be performing its spring concert featuring Faure’s Requiem.

The programme will also include other musical pieces of vocal and instrumental music by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Bruckner.

A spokesman for the choir said: ‘The Requiem charming and much-loved work is perfect for smaller choirs, it was originally written for 16 voices so it is ideal for our choir.

‘The programme also offers pieces in the same spirit, fitting the Easter time, such as Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, Bruckner’s Locus Iste and Faure’s Cantique do Jeamn Racine.

‘We are fortunate in welcoming strong men’s voices, with a rich confident sound, that contribute so much to the balance of the choir. 

The programme draws on the choir’s talents to the best advantage, showing lovely musicianship and pleasure in the works.’

Guest soloists and instrumentalists will be performing with the choir and directed by Nicholas Gardiner. 

The choir, which rehearses every Monday evening at the Manor House, now has a growing number of female singers, particularly younger members.’

The concert will take place at St Gregory’s Church, Dawlish on Tuesday March 28 at 7.30pm.

Admission is by programme costing £9.

Interval refreshments will be in aid of Rowcroft Hospice.
