Repertoire

Escafeld began life as a small group of friends (the Fossdale Singers), and for many years, as the choir gradually grew in size, madrigals, part songs and anthems formed the mainstay of its repertoire. Once the choir was able to tackle larger-scale works, its repertoire increased significantly. We enjoy performing a wide range of choral music, from Palestrina, Byrd and Vivaldi, through Mozart, Haydn and Handel to Elgar, Parry, and Vaughan Williams, and Britten, Tippett and Rutter.

These are just some of the major works we have performed:

Bernstein, Chichester Psalms

Brahms, Ein Deutsches Requiem (in German)

Britten, St Nicolas and Rejoice in the Lamb

Charpentier, Te Deum

Elgar, From the Bavarian Highlands

Faure, Requiem

Handel, Messiah

Haydn, Creation, Nelson Mass and Te Deum

Lambert, The Rio Grande

Mozart, Requiem

Orff, Carmina Burana

Poulenc, Stabat Mater

Purcell, Dido and Aeneas

Ramirez, Missa Criolla

Rossini, Petite Messe Solennelle

Rutter, Requiem

Vaughan Williams, In Windsor Forest

Vivaldi, Gloria

Inevtably, much of the choral repertoire consists of sacred music, and such large-scale works tend to feature in our spring concerts, which usually also involve young instrumentalists, mainly drawn from Sheffield University.

Our summer concerts, often performed at St Andrew's, Psalter Lane, are generally lighter in tone, and sometimes include music linked to a particular theme. These concerts have included opera choruses, excerpts from musicals, madrigals, and a wide variety of part songs.

At Christmas we generally give two concerts - one at Holy Trinity, Wentworth, and one in Sheffield (often at All Saints, Ecclesall). The Sheffield concert is often in association with a local charity. The tried and tested formula for Christmas concerts includes both music and readings, and seasonal refreshments are always served.
