Each choir member has been asked to nominate their favourite piece of music from the archive of Sine Nomine Singers’ events since 1994, and this concert’s programme comprises these old favourites. This has made for a very broad range of musics, from the 16th century composer William Byrd to that of the contemporary Estonian Arvo Pärt. There will be classic stalwarts of choral repertoire such as Lotti’s Crucifixus, and Bach’s Komm, Jesu, Komm as well as lesser known gems such as Finzi’s My Spirit sang all day and music by William Petter, the choir’s conductor from 2013 till 2016. Co-founder Stephen Davies and former members of the choir, will return from far and wide to join in three items, including Parry’s joyous I was glad.

Soprano Carol Whinnom, who has sung with the choir since 2002, chose Purcell’s exquisite 17th century choral fragment, 'Hear my Prayer, O Lord' for the programme. “I love the crunchy harmonies of this piece,” she commented, “and have fond memories of singing it in France after the choir had been on a tour of a vineyard. I hope the audience then realised that the exciting clashing notes were deliberate, and not just the result of our wine-tasting!” Appropriately enough, Moeran’s song, 'Good Wine' will also be on the programme, and refreshments will be available in the interval.
