Cantemus Cum Spiritu at Winchester Cathedral 25th & 26th May 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 25th & 26th May, we will be singing the weekend services at Winchester Cathedral. We will meet at 10.50 am on 25th to rehearse from 11 am-1 pm, and then from 3 pm-5 pm for Evensong at 5.30 pm. We will then rehearse at 9am on the Sunday morning for 11am Eucharist and then from 1.30 pm for a 3.30 pm Evensong.
We will be taking a maximum of 36 singers; 12 Sopranos, 8 Altos, 8 Tenors and 8 Basses.
The music has yet to be decided but will include a wide range of well known and less familiar pieces in different styles.
Participants are free to choose their own accommodation according to their wishes.
The fee for the weekend is £70.00
