Cake, Wine and Song!

We are 40!

We humans have a way of marking the passing the passing years and paying special attention as each decade passes.

This may seem arbitrary but it gives us all an opportunity to stop and review our achievements. It's also the opportunity for a party.

This year Cantilena marks its fortieth birthday. We are a small community choir and that makes it doubly special. It's easy to see how a 200-strong choral society might mark off the centuries, but a small choir's existence is much more volatile.

We have decided to make a splash. We have commissioned a new work by David Bednall. This is a setting of "Nightingales" by Robert Bridges and we will be giving the world premiere at our Summer concert.

We will team this with a range of English part-songs, including some other Robert Bridges settings. There will also be the now legendary Cantilena Buffet, bubbly and cake. 

This one is a must!

See you all there!
