The Farrant Singers’ next concert takes place on Saturday, 12th November at 7.30pm in St. Martin’s Church, Salisbury. The first part of the concert is centred around Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G minor. It celebrates both the 150th anniversary of his birth, and also the 100th anniversary of the first performance of the Mass.
The second part of the concert was prompted by the death earlier this year of Joseph Horovitz at the age of 95. Captain Noah was composed in 1970, originally as a children’s cantata but it became very popular with adults too with its witty and tuneful songs. It’s fun to sing, fun to listen to and should probably come with an ear worm warning.
The concert is conducted by Philip Lawson and the Singers will be joined on the night by Simon Dinsdale (organ), James Gilbert (percussion) and Alastair Hume (double bass)
