SWCS: An Evening of French Choral and Chamber Music
£10 - £20 Book Now

‘My Requiem is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest,’ said Fauré. Saffron Walden Choral Society, under the baton of their charismatic conductor Janet Wheeler, close their season with a performance of this touching and spiritually universal work, which contains the haunting (and deservedly much anthologized) Pie Jesu. Ravel’s String Quartet and Introduction & Allegro together with Lili Boulanger’s exquisite Hymne au Soleil and Psaume 24 complete this summer evening of beautiful French music.

This concert will finish at approximately 9.25pm

To book a wheelchair space or if you have any access requirements please phone the Box Office.

The free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will not be in operation for this event.
