Saturday May 21st 2022 Concert – Somerset Singers, Daniel Cushing – St Cuthbert’s Church Wells, 7.30pm

Programme and Scoring

Rutter – Requiem
2 Flutes, 1 Oboe, 2 Clarinets in B Flat, 1 Bassoon, 2 Horns in F, 3 Pedal Timpanist, Glockenspiel, Harp & Basic Standard String Size.

Stanford – Songs of the Fleet 
2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 2 Clarinets in B Flat, Two Bassoons, 2 Horns in F (supposed to be 4 but I will be arranging this so it suffices with 2 as the choir couldn’t afford to hire 4), Two Trumpets, Three Trombones, Tuba, Timpani (2 percussion players), Harp & Basic Strings – 6,6,4,4,2

 

Rehearsal on the day 4-6pm – CHANGES BELOW

 

4:00-4:40pm Will be Stanford and Stopford.


4:40-6:00pm will be Rutter Requiem.

We will be using the full two hours for the whole of choir and soloists with orchestra.

(I previously intended to rehearse the other way around and wanted time with Soloists and Orchestra alone.
This has now changed as by doing the Rutter second it will stay fresher in peoples minds for the concert and we should realistically whizz through the Stanford, leaving time to focus on the slightly trickier corners of Rutter)

 

Parking info –

There are unfortunately no parking spaces able to be reserved but the good news is that we have arranged that musicians can park their cars in the church grounds through the entry gate that will be open between 2-3pm and 9:15-10:15pm for loading and unloading of instruments etc

Info

Please bring a stand to all rehearsals.

Concert dress – long black for ladies, black DJ trousers and black shirt for men
