Programme includes readings as well as a wide range of choral music

The Exeter-based choir, Cantilena, has chosen Sidmouth for its special concert to mark Remembrance.

The performance, From Strife To Hope, is at All Saints Church on Saturday, December 1, at 7.30pm, and includes reflective readings and a wide range of choral pieces reflecting Cantilena’s broad repertoire.

The 25 strong-choir will perform music from the eight-part Requiem by English composer Herbert Howells

There will also be more familiar pieces including Eric Clapton’s Tears in Heaven and Morten Lauridsen’s Sure On This Shining Night.

Musical director Hannah Stephenson said: “We’re very much looking forward to coming to Sidmouth and performing for the first time in the unique space of All Saints Church. We’re also particularly delighted that some of the musicians from the church will be joining us and performing several pieces of their own choice during the concert.”

Proceeds are being donated to CLAPA, the Cleft Lip and Palate Association, and Refugee Support Devon.
