2017-18 season

An Evening of Remembrance

Buckland and Betchworth Choral Society present a programme of music specially chosen to reflect on this memorable day in world history.

The centrepiece of the concert will be Gabriel Fauré’s awe-inspiring Mass of the Dead, his Requiem.  Since its first performance in 1888, this work has become a firm favourite with audiences and choirs alike and regularly features in ‘Hall of Fame’ rankings.


In the same vein of remembrance and contemplation, the concert will also feature:

‘Agnus Dei’ from Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man

‘Lift Thine Eyes’ from Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Howard

Goodall’s The Lord is My Shepherd (better known as the theme to BBC’s The Vicar of Dibley) and Bob Chilcott's Be Thou My Vision.



The Choir is lucky to be joined by soloists Harriet Burns (soprano) and Kieran Rayner (baritone), as well as our brilliant accompanist, Anna Tetsuya, playing Beethoven’s Sonata Pathétique.
