University of Plymouth Choral Society on Saturday, March 16, at St Andrew's Church
IF our three main large-scale choirs seem to be in temporary hibernation, they are, in fact, hard at work rehearsing for their forthcoming concerts next month.
First out of the blocks is the University of Plymouth Choral Society on Saturday, March 16, at St Andrew's Church, with Mozart's ever-popular Requiem. Joining the choir will be the UPCS Sinfonia, and soloists Hye-Youn Lee, Clare Presland, Tyrone Clarke and Simon Thorpe – Simon Ible directs.
Capping a truly choral weekend, Plymouth Philharmonic Choir takes the stage in the Guildhall the next evening for an all-French programme. The main work is again a Requiem, this time Fauré's, and quite different in outlook in that it sees death more as a happy deliverance than something to be feared.
The concert was to have included a newly-commissioned work, but this has been replaced by Gounod's charming St Cecilia Mass. Christopher Fletcher conducts, with soloists Catherine Hamilton, Gordon Pike and John Hobbs.

Keeping to the same theme, Dartington Community Choir celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi with his own Requiem – a complete contrast from the other two, and couched in the composer's grandest operatic style. Jonathan Watts conducts in the Great Hall, Dartington on Sunday, March 24 – soloists to be confirmed.
