Parry Songs of Farewell
The Carice Singers, a vocal ensemble of sixteen young professional singers, gave their first performance in the Cotswolds in 2011. They bring their pure sound and imaginative approach to choral music to Cheltenham for the first time in a programme which pays tribute to Sir Hubert Parry in his home church. Provoked by the events of WW1, Parry’s tender and remarkable Songs of Farewell form the culmination of this concert of remembrance.
Supported by William A Cadbury Trust
Few can match The Carice Singers for musicality and beauty of tone
