Cantamus Reigate News

Welcome to Cantamus Reigate’s website!  Here you can find out all about this friendly, mixed-voice (SATB) choir, how it operates, its forthcoming events and how you can take part.

Our “Party-Singy-Thingy” on Friday 21st June was a great success! Around 30 guests chatted, drank and ate – oh, and sang! – in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere. Many thanks to The Buckland Reading Room as a lovely venue, to the many guests who brought along the eats, to Charles Thompson for accompanying and to my wife and No 2 son for all their practical help. I think it will become an annual event!

Next Event

Great news! Our Mozart Requiem will definitely be happening on 30th November in Reigate Park Church. The programme may also include Stanford’s double choir anthem: Coelos ascendit, and/or Pearsall’s 8 part: Lay a Garland. 2024 is the centenary of Stanford’s death, so it would be good to be able to nod in appreciation in his direction. Members of the Ashford Baroque Ensemble will be joining us for the Mozart. Soloists will include Mel Mehta (soprano), Anne Mitchell (contralto), Dominic Morris (tenor) and TBA (bass), all directed by Nick Landauer.

Tickets will be available in due course at £15 (Under 18s and students free).
