Please see the selection of the music on the document below. This concert is reprising works we have learned before at some point or other! We have taken into account some of the choir's suggestions for this concert; and we have also selected works we think will be learnable (or refreshable) in the short amount of time before the concert.
The pre-concert rehearsal on the day starts at 2pm in the Church.
Mozart - Lacrymosa - confirmation of notes for the altos:
the Dona eis section at the end has changed from what's printed to match the score: we come in with the sops and match their words - first 2 notes for altos are d and f# at Bar 23. See pictures below below but keep the notes that have been crossed off in bar 23.
