Stour Singers

The Advent concert given by Stour Singers on 9th December 2006 before a capacity audience in St Edmund’s, Shipston-on-Stour was a joyous preparation for Christmas.  The main work, well sung by the choir and backed by Cherwell Sinfonia and Rachel Bird on pipe organ, was the ‘Midnight Mass for Christmas Eve’ by the 17th century French composer, Charpentier.  He incorporated dance rhythms and carols popular at that time in which the audience would have joined.  Richard Emms, the choir’s founder Director, replicated the spirit of the piece by adding carols familiar to the modern ear which the Shipston audience, including the Mayor, Cllr. Mrs Angela Noyce, sang with enthusiasm.

Rehearsals resume on Thursday 11th January 2007 at 7 p.m. in the Community Lounge of Shipston High School to prepare for a performance of Hummel’s Mass in B flat and Cherubini’s Requiem on Saturday 12th May 2007.

New members in all 4 voice parts are welcome (no auditions).
