Coro Nostro Chamber Choir



Coro Nostro is A mixed choir based in Leicester
Autumn Softly Fell
with Coro Nostro Chamber Choir

St Guthlac’s Church, Knighton
Saturday 8th November 2014
7.30 pm

Tickets available on the door £8 (£6) includes wine/soft drinks

St Guthlac’s church hall, the Holbrook Memorial Hall, was built in 1922 by public subscription to commemorate the fallen of World War I. So it is very fitting that they have arranged a series of events, using the hall and church, to mark the centenary of that conflict. We are delighted to have been asked back to St Guthlac’s, after our successful concert in April 2012, to take part.

Our concert will have several themes running through it. We shall have songs about parting and reconciliation, many being lovely settings of folk songs. Also songs about nature and the countryside to think about homesickness and nostalgia. There will also be music from some of the different nations that were involved in the conflict. 

There will be a great range of styles of music, some contemporary to WW1, some not - including a fabulous very new arrangement of All Things Are Quite Silent from our current favourite composer Kerry Andrew. So in essence, we have (hopefully) prepared a lovely, thoughtful commemorative concert, that still has space to amuse and delight.

We had a great time at Bishop Street Methodist Church on Friday night. The choir sang beautifully in the lovely, warm acoustic and we were joined by a large and appreciative audience. Excellent stuff.
Thanks to Dr Wallace for the piccy!

With some excellent and often overlooked music by Fanny Hensel (Mendelssohn’s arguably more talented sister), along with some beautiful Marian hymns by men and women from a range of eras. With a load of lovely Dowland songs about Queen Elizabeth I plus lots more.All of this in the sublime acoustic space that is Bishop Street Methodist Church for the measly sum of £8 (or £6 if you’re lucky) and that’ll get you a (soft) drink and maybe a cake too depending on how organised we are.What are you waiting for? Well the 2nd of May of course…
