Bob Chilcott - March 7, Singing Day in Preston, 10:15-4:00

Work with British composer, Bob Chilcott (Mid-Winter, The Lily and The Rose, Skye Boat Song)  on his original setting of St John Passion, written for the Choir of Wells Cathedral.. This work tells the story of Christ's trial and Crucifixion using text from St John's Gospel. 

Interestingly, Chilcott has added smaller pieces within the work which can be sung by the choir and audience/congregation together. He has set some additional texts which have been taken from English poetry.

What an opportunity to work directly with the composer and sing in a mixed choir setting! And SO close to home!
