The Ceramic City Choir

Anthony Rose Chorus Master 
Ian Riddle Rehearsal Accompanist

Founded in 1942 under the conductorship of Sir Malcolm Sargent and with over 120 members, we specialise in performing major choral works with renowned professional orchestras and top vocal soloists. Distinguished guest conductors over the last 20 years have included Sir Charles Groves, Sir Edward Heath, Owain Arwel Hughes, Donald Hunt, Richard Hickox, Ian Tracey and Sir David Willcocks.

Directed by Anthony Rose, the Ceramic City Choir is Staffordshire's largest Choral Society performing in the superb Victoria Hall (Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent) and the surrounding area.  It performs the standard choral repertoire of oratorios and symphonic works regularly throughout Staffordshire and beyond, but also enjoys performing more challenging smaller-scale contemporary music. 

Our Next Concert

Faure Requiem

21 April 2018 7:30 pm

Stoke Minster

Faure Requiem

Featuring 

Ceramic City Choir

 

Programme

Jongen Messe en l'honneur du Saint-Sacrement, 40'

Boulanger Pie Jesu, 5'

Faure Cantique de Jean Racine, 5'

Faure Requiem, 35'

Of the many settings of the Requiem, this is probably the most widely loved. In comparison with the large-scale masterpieces of Verdi, Brahms and Berlioz, Faure’s setting seems gentle and unassuming, yet it is this very quality of understatement which contributes so eloquently to the work’s universal appeal.  Joseph Jongen Messe en l'honneur du Saint-Sacrement, in contrast, is rarely performed and is one of only a handful of choral pieces of Jongen to survive.
