Come and Sing Durufle: Requiem and Bruckner: Motets at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Bramcote, Nottingham.  This season’s Come and Sing event focuses on music by Anton Bruckner and Maurice Duruflé. The Bruckner motets are little gems of composition, self-contained, a whole world of expression, standing at the opposite end of the spectrum from the monumental symphonies. Staple diet of choirs the world over, they are hugely gratifying to perform. The Requiem by Maurice Duruflé is a much-loved work, comparable in tone and spirit to the setting by Fauré. Dramatic and consoling by turns, it owes much to the Gregorian chant upon which it is based. As with Vaughan Williams and folksong, so with Duruflé and plainsong – you can’t tell whether he is quoting or writing original material, but the music enjoys a unique spontaneity and fluidity which makes it deeply captivating and pleasing. Full details and a booking form can be downloaded from the Sinfonia Chorale website www.sinfonichorale.uk . Following the success of previous workshops, we expect this event to be very popular. Early booking is advised as places are limited.
