Come and Sing

On Good Friday, 30th March this year,  St Mary’s Singers will sing Wondrous Cross by Colchester based composer Alan Bullard .
Rehearsals start in St Mary’s church on Thursday 1st February at 7.30pm and continue every Thursday until the event. We seriously need more singers to enable us to perform this work and particularly men, although all voice parts welcome.
Do contact Graham or any SMS/choir member for more details or come along on 1st February.

The following is from the composer’s website:
Wondrous Cross is a reflective work that weaves the traditional Seven Last Words of Christ with linking biblical passages, well-known hymns, an arrangement of ‘Were you there’ and settings of sacred texts, including ‘Drop, drop, slow tears’ and ‘Ave verum corpus’ to create a moving and at times dramatic work.

To give a flavour, here is a snippet of Drop, drop, slow tears.
