Brahms German Requiem

This is one definitely NOT TO BE MISSED.

Brahms’s magnificent, noble “German Requiem” always draws a crowd. Its sublime, radiant solos and majestic, dramatic choruses have, for almost 150 years moved and delighted audiences. That alone is reason enough to get along to a performance.

Add to this: the united voices of around 100 singers, many known personally to you; first class soloists - the wonderful Ann Mackay and stupendous Steven Henderson - known for their splendid renditions of the work; and an orchestral ensemble drawn from far and wide. Then you’ll realise that a “perfect storm” of elements is coming together for a very special event. Great Milton & Wheatley Singers and Cumnor Choral Society are joining forces for this unique occasion, and putting their hearts and souls into making sure all the hard work counts.

As well as the Brahms, you’ll hear readings and poetry, specifically chosen to honour “Remembrance”, and spellbinding, moving solos, specifically selected for the evening.


On Saturday November 11th, set a recording for “Strictly” and head for St Mary’s, Thame at 7.30pm (better make it 7.00pm - you’ll want a good seat). Then sit back and let the balm, angst and glorious waves of beautiful melody and sumptuous harmony wash over you, knowing that you’re also supporting the “Southampton University Centre for Cancer Immunology Research” and Oxford-based children’s charity “Parasol”.
