As part of the Cork International Choral Festival’s aim to get everyone singing from the same hymn sheet (literally), we’re teaming up with St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral for a very special day-long Big Sing rehearsing and performing some of our history’s most magnificent choral works led by Director of Music and choral specialist Peter Stobart.
After such a magnificent coming-together of voices in the inaugural presentation last year, we have chosen Fauré’s Requiem for the 2018 edition, a wonderful masterpiece that many of us know and love.
We’re asking singers from all backgrounds to come along for the rehearsal and learn the piece which will be then performed that same evening.
All singers are welcome but reading music would be a great asset. Prior familiarity with the piece would be an added bonus.
You can download the score here.
