Message from Ewan Stockwell


I just wanted to drop you a short “well done” message and thank you for being superb in the performance of The Creation. Whilst I'm afraid I couldn't be there, I am glad to hear such wonderful feedback and I hope that you enjoyed being part of the performance. Please see the following email from Tom Newall:


Thanks so much for a fantastic day yesterday, and making me feel so welcome!


It’s been such a pleasure working with the choirs, fantastic soloists and orchestra and all came together and worked so hard yesterday for a fantastic result.


Please forward my thanks and best wishes to everyone.


Many thanks also to Ewan and Jamie for their work preparing the choruses, and everyone at Oakham School who work behind the scenes to make these events happen!


Just a gentle reminder about next term’s concert on Saturday 2 March 2024. The concert will focus on selected works by Stanford and Fauré on the centenary of their deaths. A full programme can be viewed on the Next Concert page.


The editions you will need are as follows:


Fauré Requiem Novello Edition

Fauré Cantique De Jean Racine (we will supply copies for you)

Stanford Songs of the Fleet Stanford, Charles V: Songs of the Fleet. Vocal Score - Stainer & Bell

Stanford The Blue Bird (we will supply copies for you)


I am hoping that the majority of you will already have the Requiem and I might be able to hand out a few spares. As a gentle reminder, please can we order locally whenever possible? We have some excellent music and book shops in the are that will happily order on behalf of you. Any issues, please do let me know.


We will not meet again until the New Year as I am now busy with the run up to our school musical production. Please be aware that rehearsals will resume on Tuesday 9 January.


Any further questions, please do email me, and do keep promoting the Choral Society to new members. We can always do with more singers!


All the best,
