Reserving a Place

We are anticipating that this will be a very popular event and places are limited, so if you would like to take part, please email David at  as soon as possible to reserve your place and a music copy.  When you email to register, it would be helpful for the admins if you could state which voice part you like to sing (Soprano/Alto/Tenor/Bass). You will not be asked to pay at this point.


Please arrive at Victoria by 1.45 pm on the afternoon of the 7th. This should give you plenty of time to pay and collect your loan copy of the score (if you haven’t already done so at the advance rehearsal) as well as find a seat. We plan to start promptly at 2.00 pm.
If you are going to be late, let us know so that we can reserve you a seat in the correct part of the choir!


The cost of the event will be £10 (£5 for under 18s/students) which includes your copy loan and refreshments. Payment will be gratefully received by card, cash or cheque (made payable to ‘Victoria Methodist Church’).

Timings / Refreshments

On the afternoon of the 7th July we will rehearse from 2.00 to approximately 4.45 (with a short break) and then break for tea and cake which will be served in another room while the soloists rehearse in the Sanctuary.
Gluten-free and dairy-free cakes will be available, but if you have got any other specific dietary requirements please let us know so that this can be passed on to the catering team who will do their best to provide cake for everyone!

At 5.15 pm we will have an informal performance of the Fauré, at which your friends and family would be very welcome to join us!


We are delighted that Claire Alsop will be joining us to accompany us on the organ, and we will also be welcoming Grace Edmunds and James Outtrim to sing the Soprano and Baritone solo parts.

Music Copies

We will be singing from the OUP edition of Fauré’s Requiem. Please make sure you leave all loaned vocal copies behind at the end of the afternoon and don’t take them with you by mistake!

What to bring/wear

On the day you might like to bring a pencil and bottle of water for the rehearsal. Dress is casual!

Additional Rehearsal

We will be having an additional rehearsal on Sunday 30th June at 7.00 pm. This is very optional, but will give singers extra time to get to know the notes if they are rusty or haven’t sung the Fauré before.

We’re really looking forward to seeing you on the 7th July for what we hope will be an exciting and fun event! Do get in touch with any additional queries at .
