Sine Nomine Singers are 'United in Division'.

South London chamber choir the Sine Nomine Singers present an evening of vocal music, in their regular venue, St George’s Church, Bickley on Saturday 12th October.

The original premise of the programme, devised by the choir’s director Jonny Davies, was the pitting of male voices against female voices, ultimately coming together in Scarlatti’s luscious baroque masterpiece, Stabat Mater, where ten completely different voice parts weave in and out to create something much more beautiful than the sum of their parts. However, the title could equally be interpreted as applying to the personal circumstances of several of the composers whose rarely performed music will be heard on the night.

While her 17th century Italian contemporaries were united in appreciating her excellent musicianship, Barbara Strozzi’s personal life proved much more controversial. Catalan composer Pau Casals is best known in the UK as Pablo Casals, the name imposed on him by Castillian Spain; this year is the 80th anniversary of the end of the Spanish Civil War, from which Casals was a refugee, as well as the 40th anniversary of the transferance of his remains back to his native village, after General Franco’s death and the restoration of democracy. Music by Mendelssohn, Rheinberger and Britten will also be sung.

This is the Sine Nomine Singers’ first concert in partnership with Bromley Youth Music Trust, with the aim of providing a concert platform for local talented young musicians. Jennifer Wells and Beth Fitzpatrick (violin and piano) will also perform. This is part of the Sine Nomine Singers’ regular concert series, the next of which will be on Saturday 8th February 2020.

Tickets will be available on the door but are slightly cheaper if purchased in advance.
