TATTON Singers will be performing two stirring works – Ralph Vaughan Williams's Five Mystical Songs and Maurice Duruflé's Requiem, at their concert on Saturday, March 24.

The Five Mystical Songs are very apt for this time of year - the first being entitled 'Easter'.

All five songs are settings of the great 17th century mystical poet George Herbert – inspiring music to sing and listen to.

The first four are dominated by baritone solo, with the final one the uplifting chorus 'Let all the world in every corner sing'.

Duruflé's Requiem is perhaps the finest French religious work of the 20th century, with the mood varying from deep reflection to joyful ecstasy.

Scored for chorus, two solo singers and a cello, the piece is a worthy successor to Fauré's well-known Requiem.

For this concert Tatton Singers will be joined by Sam Hudson, organist of Blackburn Cathedral, and three distinguished young soloists.

The concert is at St John’s Church, Knutsford, and begins at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available online at thetattonsingers.co.uk and on the door at £12 (£11 concessions) and students at £5. The ticket price includes a glass of wine or a soft drink.
