Spring 2023 Concert

Music for Penance and Passiontide

Byrd: Mass for 4 Voices
Stainer: The Crucifixion

St Peter’s Church, Frimley GU16 7AQ

Surrey Heath Singers gave a delightful concert on Saturday evening, April 1, 2023, at St Peter’s Church in Frimley.

The concert opened with a performance of William Byrd’s Ave Verum Corpus. This was followed by Byrd’s Mass for 4 Voices. This beautiful piece of Renaissance polyphony was composed in a time of religious turmoil in England.

The second half featured John Stainer’s The Crucifixion. This is a powerful and moving work, and the Surrey Heath Singers did a wonderful job of bringing it to life. The choir sang with precision and clarity, and the soloists were all excellent.

Here are some reviews from audience members:

  • “The Surrey Heath Singers were simply amazing! They sang with such passion and precision, and the music was beautiful. I highly recommend seeing them perform.”
  • “The Surrey Heath Singers gave a wonderful performance of The Crucifixion. The choir sang with such emotion, and the soloists were all excellent. It was a truly moving experience.”
