Singing Day

We love hosting Singing Days, when we are joined by guest singers to work together on a selected work. These are very popular, attracting around 100 additional singers to join us for the day. In past years, for example we have worked on Bach’s Mass in B Minor and St. John Passion and introduced the commissioned Psalm Cantata by John McCabe to a wider group of singers.

In 2023 we looked at Handel’s Israel in Egypt. In February 2024 we spent a day singing Duruflé’s Requiem. For the first time ever we will have two singing days in 2024. The next one will be on 5th October 2024 and we will sing Bach’s Christmas Oratorio. Save the date!

Participant Feedback

Here is what some participants had to say about our latest singing day.

February 2024 – Duruflé Requiem

Thank you for a wonderful Singing Day yesterday, with special gratitude to Harry Bradford for his excellent conducting/leading.” 

Thank you for an excellent workshop yesterday. The Duruflé is a wonderful work and it was a great pleasure to re-acquaint ourselves with it. We thoroughly enjoyed the event. We were very impressed by your conductor; he had a very good approach and clearly knows the requiem inside out! It was a pleasure to sing with him. Your accompanist too was superb, an excellent team.  And the whole day seemed to go very smoothly.

Thank you all for yesterday. Very enjoyable and useful.

Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the singing day. Harry is a great MD: so knowledgeable, engaging, and entertaining. You’re very lucky to have him!

Renewed thanks to you, Ben, for your role in the successful Singing Day. I especially appreciated Harry’s patient, encouraging and precise direction, plus his sense of humour. All in all, it was one of the best singing days I’ve ever attended.
