On Friday, November 1, 2019, at 7:30 p.m., the choir of the Church of St John the Evangelist, Locke Street, Hamilton, (The Rock on Locke) under the direction of Paul Grimwood, will sing the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. November 1 is the Feast of All Saints.
This Requiem, one of the most beautiful of all 19th century works, was written in the 1880's for the choir at the Madeleine Church in Paris, France. With Fauré’s gifts of sensuous harmony, beautiful melody and great attention to orchestral colour, this Requiem is for many a supreme religious and musical experience.
Soloists for the Requiem will be Beverly Bronte-Tinkew, soprano, and Tom Fleming, bass, with Paul Grimwood, organ. Joining him will be Timothy Lo, in the duet movement.
Admission is free, although there will be a free-will offering received. For more information, please telephone the church office at 905-522-0602, or write to Paul Grimwood at paul.grimwood@sympatico,.ca
Office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
