The settings are (click on the composer to access a You Tube file):
PLUS two settings that have been specifically commissioned by GCS for the day. One is by John Merrick (Vice-Chairman of GCS) and the other by Freya Ireland (a student at Pates Grammar School in Cheltenham).
You will be the first singers ever to perform these in concert!
For more details on the composers and to see the music we will perform, look at the draft of the booklet you will be given on the day to act as a memento and a reference on the day.
We have created sound files, by voice part for the new settings so visit this page to access these to help you to practice in advance.
