Cantemus Cum Spiritu at Durham Cathedral 24th & 25th February 2024
Cantemus Cum Spiritu events are for advanced singers, and exist in order to allow people who are considered leaders within their own choirs to have the chance to come together to sing music to a high level. It is taken as read that, if you choose to apply for a Cantemus event, you will arrive either fully prepared musically or able to sight-read the music. The expected standard is that each singer will be capable of holding their own line, without the aid of singers around them, in order that, at the start of each event, we can hit the ground running and take your singing to another level.
Cantemus Cum Spiritu exists to help singers to find the joy in church music in the hope that the experience of working with other singers of a similar level will have a knock-on effect on the health and strength of their home choirs. We start each event from the point of being confident that we know the notes and words, so that we have the chance to really explore the music and to enable all the singers to reach their expressive potential.
On 24th & 25th February we will be singing the services at Durham Cathedral. There will be 4 services: Evensong at 5.30 on the Saturday, then on Sunday Sung Eucharist at 10am, and Mattins at 11.30, with our final service being Evensong at 3.30pm.
We will take a maximum of 36 singers: 12 Sopranos, 8 Altos, 8 Tenors and 8 Basses
The music has yet to be confirmed but will include some new pieces plus a few familiar ones.
All members make their own travel arrangements and find their own accommodation.
The fee for the weekend is £70.00
