Male singers required for Asia Premiere of Paul Mealor’s Requiem.
After our successful performance in the US premiere of the acclaimed British composer, Paul Mealor’s, Requiem, in Carnegie Hall in Nov 2017, he has kindly given us permission to hold the Asia premiere in Hong Kong. The concert will be in St John’s Cathedral on May 23rd. We are looking for some more tenors and basses to join us. Please email email@example.com
Here are some details from a review of this work:
“Requiem: The Souls of the Righteous. This forty-minute, ten-movement work uses sections of the traditional Requiem mass with scripture from the King James Bible, and poems from Grahame Davis.
The music critic, Frank Daykin, in an earlier review of Mr. Mealor that “if there ‘is’ a heaven, I want it to sound like the music of Paul Mealor.” One tends to understand why when listening to his Requiem – Mr. Mealor’s God is unfailingly compassionate, His judgment of souls is heavily tilted towards mercy, and all souls are worthy of Heaven. This work is filled with serene beauty from start to finish – even Fauré’s Requiem sounds fearsome in comparison!”
Thank you from the Cecilian Singers!
To all of you who helped support The Cecilians ‘A Merry Little Christmas!’ a very big thank you! We couldn’t do it without you and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed performing for you.
We were very lucky, through you and our friends at St James’s Place Foundation, we filled St John’s Cathedral and hope to be able to provide a handsome donation to Jeff and our friends at Impact HK to continue their valuable work with the homeless of Hong Kong.
We are working on the final details of a very exciting Spring season which we hope to announce in January. We welcome anyone who wishes to join us to sing (especially Tenors and Bass!). If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always we are looking to make sure we can support the charitable causes our seasons donate to. This is always easier if we can attract sponsors, so if you or your company would be interested in working with us to sponsor the Cecilians Spring season please contact us email@example.com.
We hope you will continue to support us in the New Year and wish you all a very Happy Christmas!
