By the end of September, you are likely to have seen the pictures of the Methodist Modern Art Collection in our church and in the library.
On Saturday 30th September, the Solihull Methodist Community Choir of over 40 voices is presenting choral music to complement the pictures, but perhaps inviting you to see the pictures from a different perspective.
As the pictures have eclectic styles, the choral pieces (for soloists, small groups and the full choir) will include many different styles and periods of music. We will be singing to tell the story of the pictures from the Magnificat through to Pentecost, via the feeding of the 5,000, the raising of Lazarus, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.
The choral music includes modern songs such as “You raise me up”, folk songs, African-American spirituals, a song from the Sankey and Moody hymn book, well-loved hymn words to new tunes, “Benedictus” by Karl Jenkins and “God so loved the world” from Stainer’s Crucifixion. There should be something to please everyone.
A group of 15 instrumentalists will provide the accompaniment.
Please “come, see and hear” our musical thoughts about the pictures. The choir received excellent reviews after our performances of “All is well” last Advent, and “Anno Domini” in June for the Church anniversary celebrations. We look forward to singing for you again.
The concert will be preceded with canapes and drinks from 7.00 pm
