Puccini’s Requiem Although very short was extremely poignant and we were accompanied by Ben Kearsley on the Viola, as well as Michał Gajzler on piano.

Petite Messe Solennelle is considered by the composer as one of his Péchés de vieillesse ("Sins of Old Age"), which unites a number of songs, and instrumental works written after his retiring from operatic writing. The Mass was originally composed for 12 voices with piano and harmonium accompaniment. The Farlkirk Festival Chorus was proud to present this initial version of Rossini’s. It is with great pleasure that we welcomed back our founder and Musical Director Robert Tait, who  played the harmonium part, in a duet with our actual pianist Michał Gajzler. It was an exciting performance not to be missed. Soloists:  Dana Tanase – Soprano;  Lynn Bellamy – Mezzo-soprano;  Sanggyoul Lee – Tenor; Lancelot Nomura – Bass;Piano: Michał Gajzler; Harmonium: Robert Tait;  Conductor: Razvan Luculescu

May Concert 2019

In Autumn 2019 , for the first time, we produced a short Autumn Concert, held in the Trinity Church on Sunday 27 October 2019 when we performed From The Bavarian Highlands by Edward Elgar and Songs and Sonnets, music by George Shearing and words by William Shakespeare. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we may well do something again similar in the future.

We performed a spring concert on 15th May 2022 in Trinity Church Sanctuary, Falkirk. The concert consisted of:

1. Easter Hymn from Cavalleria Rusticana (with Soprano soloist)

2. Humming Chorus from Madame Butterfly.

3. The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Nabucco.

4. Anvil Chorus

5. Te Deum

6. Faure's Requiem.

By all accounts the concert was a great success. Thank you to all who attended.
