Sail On Titanic
4 March 2012
Celebrate is perhaps not the right word when talking about the sinking of RMS Titanic. It is 100 years since that fateful night and it seemed appropriate to mark the occasion somehow. Most of you will have seen the magnificent film version, and some of you may have seen the very powerful and atmospheric stage musical. We have included music from both of these in this term’s concerts. We have also widened our scope a little with songs about the sea itself and the rivers that flow into it.
Again I hope I have stretched the singers, especially with the opening of Vaughan Williams’ Sea Symphony, one of the most arresting openings in the classical choral repertoire. 'Behold The Sea Itself'. They have certainly risen to the challenge, as always.
After the huge success of our Christmas concert, this term has been completely different. Much more emotionally charged in some places; dare I say it, more dramatic. There have been tears. And as always, lots of laughter. The spirit in the rehearsals has been as uplifting as ever as we piece together what we hope will be a dramatic and enjoyable concert for you.
