A charity concert for Samaritans

Fauré Requiem

James Recknell organ

Bury Bach Choir

Philip Reed conductor


For this special charity concert in aid of Samaritans, the Bury Bach Choir performs Fauré’s ever-popular Requiem. The consoling quality of this music, which depicts the reaching for eternal rest, has made it one of the best-loved choral works of the repertory. Prepare to be profoundly moved by the intimacy and ethereal beauty of this humble yet elegant masterpiece. Soloists Fae Evelyn and Tom Asher join us for this performance.


The programme also includes several of the choir’s favourite short pieces, including Mozart’s Ave verum corpus, motets by Bruckner, and John Tavener’s The Lamb and Song for Athene; the latter gained worldwide popularity when it was sung at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997. 


All the profits from this concert will go to Samaritans.  There are no early booking or Friends discounts for this concert.
