For those of you who want to get ahead and start looking at our Autumn programme, whilst we sadly can't give a cast-iron guarantee we will be fully up and running by then, we hope to be singing Dvorak's Requiem using the following score:   
                                  
                         The New Novello Choral Edition, Order No. 072516

and for suggestions of recordings to listen to, Peter Newble has sent the following:

"My own preference would be Neeme Jarvi's (in 2009) with the LPO on their own label (LPO-0042), but I'm biased because I was the producer!  That recording is not currently available on CD but may be downloaded for between £7.48 and £9.99, depending on the retailer.  It hasn't been recorded anything like as often as most of Dvorak's works, but there are a few others, some (especially the older ones) available in various different compilations, and some looking more promising than others."
