The Choral Society performed Duruflé and Fauré Requiems in their Lent term concert

A term of rehearsals and lots of practice at home culminated in the Lent Term Gresham’s Choral Society concert on Sunday 3rd March in Chapel. Members of the Community and School came together, accompanied by an accomplished orchestra, to perform the Duruflé and Fauré Requiems. For many of the Chorus it was the first time they had sung the beautiful yet challenging Duruflé while Fauré’s Requiem for singers and audience alike is a favourite choral work. Unfortunately, illness precluded two of our female pupil soloists to perform but Zinny B stepped in and as well as singing soprano arias, found her bottom notes and rose to the challenge at the last minute to sing the alto scored Pie Jesu in the Duruflé.  Jimmy T, Sebastian C and Milan H proved themselves to be impressive male soloists.
