Hereford Cathedral Voluntary Choir is running a composition workshop on Saturday 30 September on the theme of ‘Marches Memorials’.

Composers are invited to submit one or more settings for SATB (with or without accompaniment) of memorial poetry from churches and graves in Herefordshire and the surrounding area. Up to five pieces will be shortlisted, rehearsed for 15 minutes only and then given a workshop performance. Pieces will be more likely to be selected if they are relatively concise while retaining interest and an element of challenge. It is hoped that some of the more successful entries could be incorporated in a concert programme, perhaps on a future tour.

There is no age limit, and the deadline for submissions is Saturday 8 September. Entries may be sent by email to Peter Dyke, the choir’s director, or by post
