Come & Sing
Mozart ‘Requiem’: Good Friday 19 April 2019 at Bottesford Parish Church
The Cranmer Company of Singers and Musical Director Deborah Davies are hosting another charity Come & Sing. This popular event, where time and talents are freely given, raised a record £1,908 in 2017 then £1,400 in 2018, so bring your voice, bring a friend, have a good time and see how much we can raise in 2019.
The Guardian describes it as uniquely breathtaking music that shows us pain, lament and fleeting serenity. All who sing it feel the intensity of the score and few can help wondering about the chilling mystery around its composition. The stories fuelled the famous play and film Amadeus.
All welcome – £6/8/10 to sing, tiered as we ask you to select the amount you wish to give.
Donations on door from audience.
Rehearsal starts 4.30pm (arrive earlier), charity performance 7.30pm.
Singers please book your place by contacting Anny :

Organist: Paul Hayward
Conductor: Deborah Davies
Singers – if you wish, bring a picnic supper to have between rehearsal and performance.

Come …. and ….Sing, or Come & Listen, you will be made very welcome.
The Cranmer Company of Singers is looking for a few additional tenors and basses to join us for an exciting year of singing. Whilst we are particularly looking for a few more men, we would also welcome enquiries from altos and sopranos.
We are a welcoming, friendly choir who have a lot of fun socially whilst singing absolutely wonderful music in brilliant venues around the U.K. and abroad. This year we have been asked to sing at Beverley Minster, Tewkesbury Abbey and at the Bazilika in Budapest! In addition to this we will host our annual Good Friday charity ‘Come & Sing’ at Bottesford Church, this year singing the powerful and beautiful Mozart ‘Requiem’. Everyone is welcome to join us for this event. We also put on concerts in the local area, sometimes with an orchestra which is always very exciting.
Come along and join us for a few rehearsals to see how you get along!
Please contact Deborah Davies on 01949 851030 or 0775 909 1160 or email email@example.com for more information or just to have a chat about the possibility of joining us.
