Commemorating the Centenary of Armistice 2018

Our Remembrance Concert will feature John Rutter’s Requiem.

Music
The English composer, John Rutter, composed his Requiem for soprano solo, mixed choir and small orchestra in 1985. Five of its seven movements are based on text from the Latin Requiem Mass, and his work is often inspired by the spirituality of sacred verses and prayers. Rutter has been called “the most gifted composer of his generation”.

The Requiem is a moving piece of music that offers hope, which is why we have chosen this work to honour the sacrifice of all who gave their lives in the Great War. The Cantabile Singers performance will include soprano soloist, Bethany Hill and a small orchestra.

In addition to the Requiem, the choir will also perform other works, including Rutter’s The Lord Bless You and Keep You.

Readings
We are privileged to include short readings from Australian veterans who have given service to their country. We hope many veterans and their families can join us in this commemorative concert. All welcome.
