The Manchester Carols

The Manchester Carols is an inspired collaboration between composer Sasha Johnson Manning and Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. A collection of 12 carols, linked with a gentle, entertaining narration, which reshape and modernise the Christmas story. Its creators wanted to write something that is relevant to and reflects modern society, and which acknowledges the fact that even though someone might not subscribe to the religion behind the Nativity story, they can still appreciate it as an inspiring, magical tale. The carols are for everyone, believers or not.

Stainer's Crucifixion &
Fauré's Requiem

Stainer's Crucifixion is an oratorio for a SATB choir and organ composed by John Stainer in 1887, with text by W J Sparrow Simpson. The piece relates the Biblical narrative of the Passion and Crucifixion of Jesus. It is particularly noted for the Christian hymnAll for Jesus, All for Jesus. We will be performing this work in the orchestrated version.

Fauré's Requiem is the best known of his large works. Composed between 1887 and 1890, it's a modified version of the Mass for the Dead, with seven movements. Treble and baritone soloists combine with a mixed choir and orchestra or organ.
