For this special charity concert in aid of Bury St Edmunds & West Suffolk Samaritans, the Bury Bach Choir performs Fauré’s much loved Requiem with soloists Fae Evelyn and Tom Asher, both donating their fees to Samaritans.

The programme also includes several of the choir’s favourite short pieces, including Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus, motets by Bruckner and John Tavener’s The Lamb and Song for Athene; the latter gained worldwide popularity when it was sung at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997.  

All profits will go to Samaritans. We hope our performance will fund many hours of sympathetic listening. In some cases it could prove literally lifesaving.
