Welcome to Valentine Singers
This year we celebrate 25 years of choral performances!

Valentine Singers is a friendly choir, based in Ilford, who relish the challenge of singing a wide range of choral music. Concerts feature one major work or a collection of shorter pieces and at least once a year we sing with professional soloists and instrumentalists including a full orchestra. The choir is proud to bring high quality music to Redbridge for the local community to enjoy.

CONCERT
Bob Chilcott ~ St John Passion
The Drive Methodist Church, Ilford, IG1 3PP

Bob Chilcott’s setting of the Passion tells the story of Christ’s trial and Crucifixion using the text from St John’s Gospel. The drama is narrated by the evangelist with soloists and chorus taking the parts of the various characters and groups. The story is concisely told and is punctuated by four beautiful meditations, featuring a soprano soloist. Chilcott says: “The texts are taken from English poems from the thirteenth to the early seventeenth centuries that express deeply human responses to death, to life, and to man’s relationship with the world and with God.” There are also five beautiful
new settings of well-known Passiontide hymn texts for audience participation.

Evangelist ~ Bene’t Coldstream
Soprano soloist ~ Fru Chilvers
Organ ~ Jonathan Dods
Cello ~Francine Loze
