On Saturday 29th April the Dolce Singers Chamber Choir will be performing a programme of music which includes ‘Canticles’ by local Dorset composer Matthew Coleridge, at St Margaret’s Church, Corsley. This is one of the earliest live performances of his ‘Magnificat’ and ‘Nunc Dimittis’ and the first with the composer himself singing.

Matthew was brought up in Cheltenham and has been involved in music all his life joining his local church choir at the young age of six. His music was hailed by the late Sir Neville Marriner as “a valuable addition to 21st century choral repertoire”. His “Requiem in a Day” choral workshops – held in some of the country’s finest cathedrals and abbeys – attract hundreds of singers, who are often moved to tears whilst performing his “exquisitely beautiful” music.

Along with Matthew’s music the choir will be warming up the Coronation atmosphere with performances of Handel’s ‘Zadok’ The Priest’ and Parry’s ‘I was Glad’ and also performing Mozart’s great Requiem.

Matthew Coleridge and the Dolce Singers can be seen and heard at 7.30pm on Saturday 29th April at St Margaret’s Church, Corsley. Tickets can be bought by visiting the Dolce Singers website: dolcesingers.co.uk
