Please use the schedule below to help you to prepare for rehearsals, with the usual proviso that it may have to be altered in the light of experience.

NB (i) the first 30 bars of the Offertory in the Fauré and bars 22-73 of My heart is inditing will be sung by a semichorus (with the baritone soloist taking the bass part in the Handel). Those involved will be notified individually and these sections will be rehearsed between 7.00 and 7.30 on a number of Wednesdays.

(ii) the Benedicite is quite short (about 6 minutes) but will be rehearsed ‘little and often’ so that we are all able to become thoroughly familiar with it.
