We made it. 10 years have passed and Cantala is brimming with passionate choral singers, long lasting friendships and excitement for the year ahead. Here is the upcoming 2018 Fall/Winter repertoire.
2018 Fall/Winter repertoire
A Ceremony of Carols, Benjamin Britten. Performed with Harp. A classic work for treble choir with glorious melodies and harmonies to cherish.
The Birds, Benjamin Britten. Performed with Harp. A simple unison song you're sure to enjoy.
In The Bleak Mid Winter, Benjamin Britten. From his larger unaccompanied SATB work, A Boy is Born. Stunning and full of choral stillness-my favourite quality.
Lo How a Rose Er Blooming, Stephen Smith. A piece by the wonderful Canadian composer Stephen Smith and his gorgeous arrangement for 4 part unaccompanied women's choir.
Deck the Halls in 7/8 , John McKelvy. Something familiar with a twist!
Ave Maria, David McIntyre. A piece demonstrating the awesome colour of dissonant chords and invigorating pulse of rhythm.
Tota Pulcra Es, Maurice Durufle. A classic unaccompanied choral piece for an advanced Women's choir.
Sussex Carol -Traditional. Something fun and easy to keep everyone jolly and bright-both in the choir and in the audience.
New this year: We will be performing our concerts from memory. I am exciting to bring our musical communication with each other and our audience to a new level.
