The Armed Man vs Cantus de Stellis


Founded in 1964, The Thames Philharmonic Choir has a diverse membership, featuring singers of all ages. Anyone can audition, and you will get to perform with top orchestras and soloists. If you are interested in joining, you can attend one of the rehearsals, which are held every Tuesday at 7.30pm at either Raleigh Road United Church or Granard School in Putney. The choir's repertoire covers the eighteenth to twentieth century, as well as Renaissance music.

If you cannot able to carry a tune, but are still able to appreciate it, then instead of attending rehearsals, attend one of their concerts instead. The choir are now entering their fiftieth season, and you can hear them perform at various locations for free.

30th November, 7.30pm
St Paul's Church, Augustus Road, Wimbledon Park, SW19 6EW

The choir will sing to Karl Jenkins, The Armed Man, which is a passionate plea for peace, and named after a popular medieval song. This will be followed by Cantus de Stellis, written by Kevin Jones for Kingston University, and inspired by the movement of heavenly bodies.

15th March, 7.30pm
Cadogan Hall, Sloane Terrace, SW1X 9DQ

Brahms's A German Requiem was written in remembrance of his mother and friend, Robert Schumann; it is a series of bible passages written as a form of healing. This will be accompanied by Elgar's Serenade for Strings, a composition from his early works.

7th June, 7.30pm
St Andrew's Church, Maple Road, Surbiton, KT6 4DS

Considered the leading English composer of the Renissance, William Byrd's Laudibus in sanctis and Ave verum corpus will be a highlight of the evening. Other performances will include Bach with Der Geist hilft, Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusik, and Nelson Mass by Hayden.
