MUSIQUE SACREE WITH CANTIBLE JERSEY

Mixed choir Cantible Jersey are inviting all those who enjoy listening to French choral music to join them at the Town Church this Saturday 9 March as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.

The 80-minute event starts at 7.30pm and the varied first half includes some of the most famous French shorter choral works alongside the organ music by Vierne, the organist at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris between 1900-1937.

The choir will also perform Fauré’s Requiem, which was composed between 1887 and 1890, and is infused with music that is calm, elevating and consolatory. The work pivots around the beautiful soprano solo, Pie Jesu, framed by two groups of three movements with complementary solos for baritone, forming a perfectly balanced and serene setting of Requiem Mass.
