from Choral Evensong From Hereford Cathedral
from Richard Birchall Sings in St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle
To champion the ancient tradition of the all-male choir in Cathedrals, Chapels Royal, Collegiate Churches, University Chapels and similar ecclesiastical foundations.
It is also the policy of CTCC to encourage parish churches which maintain, or seek to establish, all-male choirs.
AGM 2014, TRURO CATHEDRAL, 21 AND 22 JUNE
This is to be no ordinary AGM as an extraordinary feast of music awaits CTCC in Truro over the weekend of 21st and 22nd June 2014.
Following on from the joys of Canterbury in April and Christchurch Priory in October 2013, the programme on Saturday 21 June will be as follows:
An early luncheon.
A talk by either Christopher Gray (Director of Music) or a member of The Chapter.
Followed by a Summer Concert given by The Cathedral Choir at 5.00pm (for which CTCC has obtained concessionary prices).
Sunday morning offers a Choral Mass, and then mid afternoon, in place of Evensong, the Cathedral Choir will sing a Lutheran Vespers from Bach's time (including a cantata) with orchestra.
We will endeavour to include a tour of the cathedral wherever possible
over the weekend.
We welcome the distinguished musician Alan Thurlow, BA,
D.Mus (Lambeth), FRCO (CHM), FRSCM, FGCM (Hon);
Organist Emeritus of Chichester Cathedral;
as one of our vice-presidents.
An article about him appears in the Autumn 2013 issue of Clarion Call.
