In the 4 years since Jamie W. Hall took up the baton as Musical Director he has raised the choir’s performance standards to a new high and the choir is attracting increased attention, a new following and new members. In July RCS will showcase multiple pieces of music by history’s greatest composers to feature the choir’s beautiful vocal blend, sensitive treatment of close harmony, and its ability to sing unaccompanied music in the most accomplished way. RCS will perform an eclectic programme of blissful sacred European music from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries. Listeners can expect to be transported by the wonderful sounds conceived by composers such as Palestrina, Rossini, Rachmaninoff, Brahms, Monteverdi and Bach and many others. Featuring a recital of Rachmaninoff songs by the accomplished guest tenor Tom Raskin, and accompanied by the skilful organist Richard McVeigh, this promises to be an evening of great musical enjoyment.
