Romsey Choral Society is delighted to welcome Richard Pearce, who takes up the baton as Musical Director. Richard Pearce was organ scholar at Trinity College Cambridge, and is a Professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He is a talented conductor, pianist and organist and is associated with many well known professional choirs, including the Royal Choral Society, and regularly records and broadcasts with the BBC Singers. He is the organist of choice for the Philharmonia and BBC Symphony Orchestras and also conducts and plays for services at St. Margaret’s Church, Westminster, and at the Houses of Parliament.

The Remembrance Day Concert programme has an interesting twentieth century character. It comprises works by two American composers: Morten Lauridsen’s O nata lux, and Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, the latter commissioned by the Dean of Chichester Cathedral for the 1965 Southern Cathedrals Festival. Alongside these will be works by two English composers: John Rutter’s Requiem, and Tarik O’Regan’s Dorchester Canticles.
