The Chorale performing at St Nicholas' Church in Lincoln
As a chamber choir of around 40 voices, the Lincoln Chorale enjoys rehearsing and performing a wide classical repertoire, ranging from small scale unaccompanied works to settings for double choir with orchestra. Their programmes are often themed and include contrasting pieces from a variety of styles and periods.
Recent performances have included Rachmaninov's Vespers, Requiems by Duruflé , Victoria and Howells, Carmina Burana and smaller pieces ranging from the 16th to 21st centuries by composers as varied as Dove, Tomkins, Bruckner, Macmillan, Moore and Verdi.
The choir performs in venues both in the city of Lincoln and around the county, having visited Louth and Stow in recent years.
Since its first performance in 1977, the choir has established a reputation for a high quality of performance of demanding and interesting repertoire. Many of the members have been with the group for over 20 years and are still enjoying being challenged by new music on their Tuesday night rehearsals
We'll be performing a sequence of music for Lent, including parts of Victoria's Tenebrae Responses, The Sanders Reproaches and Monteverdi's Beatus Vir, accompanied by the Early Music Group, 1685.
