Lyme Bay Chorale to mark Remembrance Sunday with a free concert

Lyme Bay ChoraleLYME Bay Chorale will give a performance of Fauré’s wellknown Requiem to mark Remembrance Sunday on November 14.

The concert will be held at 4.30pm in St Michael’s Parish Church in Lyme Regis, and is free with a retiring collection in aid of the Royal British Legion.

The choir’s musical director, Alex Davies, will play the organ, and local musician Nick Brown will conduct.

“The Fauré Requiem is reflective and moving and is sure to be familiar to many listeners,” said Alex.

“We hope people will see the concert as an opportunity for reflection as well as a chance to hear some beautiful music.   

COVID-19 safety measures will be in place at the concert, with stewards to ensure social distancing.
