LADY CHAPEL LUNCHTIME CONCERT - THE DERWENT SINGERS

01 June 2018 1:10pm

This award-winning Derby-based chamber choir has earned itself a distinguished reputation for performance of all musical genres, from the Renaissance to the present-day. Around twenty-five strong, they perform several concerts each year in the East Midlands, as well as occasional "away fixtures".

As well as undertaking "lighter" concerts, they sing a hugely varied range of music: from Palestrina to Chilcott, be it sacred, secular, serious or light-hearted, well-known or more obscure, a cappella or with the composer's specified accompaniment of - say - organ, piano or orchestra, they will tackle it with enthusiasm and professionalism. Past performances have included Bach's St John Passion, Britten's St Nicholas, Finzi's In Terra Pax, Vivaldi and Monteverdi with Emma Kirkby.

Their Director of Music, since 2004, is Richard Roddis. Richard has a formidable reputation as both a choral director and singer. Several young singers have joined the ranks recently.
