To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Barnes Music Festival, Barnes Choir perform two contrasting works together with a specially commissioned collaboration between Jamila Gavin and Russell Hepplewhite. Mozart’s so-called Coronation Mass was performed at the coronation of Francis II in 1792 whilst The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum for the Millennium celebrations, and dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis.
The Barnes Choir was established in 1954, and has some 60 singers drawn from the Barnes, Sheen and Richmond area. We perform mainly, but not exclusively, classical choral works, including those of local composers such as Howard Goodall and Gustav Holst, and we occasionally commission new works, most recently from Michael Zev Gordon and Russell Hepplewhite. We perform three concerts each Season at local venues, our Spring concert being performed as part of the prestigious Barnes Music Festival.
