Joint Choral Rehearsal for The Kingdom

26th April 2016 @ 19:30 - 21:30
Hereford Cathedral, Broad Street
Hereford, HR1 2NG

All singers on deck please for this rehearsal in the Cathedral.  We need to sort out any issues over positioning on the staging, to save valuable rehearsal time on the day of the performance when we have the orchestra and soloists with us.  Additionally it will be a chance to get used to singing (and watching as well as listening) in the much bigger acoustic, and with the conductor further away from us than usual.

Elgar intended his oratorio The Kingdom as the second part of a trilogy depicting the earliest days of the Christian Church.  The first part, The Apostles, was given its first performance at the Birmingham Triennial Festival in October 1903; that of The Kingdom took place at the same Festival three years later,…
