Venice (2017)
In May 2017 over sixty members of the choir will be embarking on their next “Sacred Space” tour, this time to Venice! The choir have previously sung Masses in the Papal Basilica of St Peter’s Rome (2011) and Notre Dame Cathedral Paris (2013), and on this tour they will be singing in the Basilica of St Mark’s Venice for Mass on the transferred Feast of the Ascension, Sunday 28 May 2017 at 6:45pm. Whilst in Rome they also sang at All Saints’ Church, and in Paris we also sang at the Basilica of Saint Denis just north of Paris, so too in Venice we will also have a second venue – the Chiesa di San Nicolò in Padua where we will perform a concert on Friday 27 May 2017 at 9:00pm including Fauré’s Requiem.

Both Churches have superb acoustics, and - of course - glorious architecture and art; do not miss it. We are delighted that Alvise Pellegrini will be accompanying the choir on this tour. He is a regular organist for a number of churches in and around Northampton, but was born and raised less than half an hour from Venice, and he hold organ diplomas from the Conservatoires in Castelfranco Veneto and Padua. In 2017 the choir will also be singing Choral Evensong in Ely and Lichfield Cathedrals, and launching their latest CD Requiem Reflections, alongside their usual programme of concerts. An exciting and busy year indeed!
