BEDWORTH SINGERS

Well, we are a mixed choir and a friendly group who just enjoy making music.

Our members have wide ranging musical tastes so we try to cater for everyone and perform as wide a range of musical styles as possible. 

Here’s a taste of what we’ve done in the last few years with our current musical director, Hilary Griffiths ...

Our October 2010 concert had an American theme. Songs we sang included Barbara Ann, Java Jive, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Bridge over Troubled Water, All my Trials and a medley of songs from Bernstein’s West Side Story

Christmas 2010 heard us celebrating “Christmas Around the World” with songs such as Riu, Riu, Chiu (Spain) which became a choir “favourite”; Carol of the Bells (Ukraine), Te Harinui (New Zealand), Hey Motswala (Africa)

In April 2011 our main focus was John Rutter’s Requiem. We also performed Handel’s Zadok the Priest; J.S. Bach’s Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring; Rachmaninov’s Bogoroditse Devo (from Russian Vespers) a truly beautiful piece of choral music, and yes we sang in Russian!

In July 2011 we went on a “Musical Journey around the British Isles” with Sumer is Icumen In; O, No John! ; Ellan Vannin (Isle of Man); The Eriskay Love Lilt; Londonderry Air; All Through the Night, MacTavish (another choir “favourite”!) and Water of Tyne.  On our journey we were joined by Bedworth Wind Band – the first of many associations, we hope.

On Saturday 10th December 2011 we returned  to St James’s Primary School, Bulkington for a joint concert with St James’s Concert Choir and the Nuneaton branch of the Society of Recorder Players. We called this ‘Rejoice and be Merry’.

On Thursday 15th December 2011 we were at St John’s Methodist Church, Nuneaton with a revised version of ‘Rejoice and be Merry’.
