A DAY SCHOOL
Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) Requiem
Hector Berlioz (1803-1869) Te Deum
Each of these choral-orchestral wrks is thoroughly representative of its composer's genius. And each can lay claim to a place among the greatest choral music ever composed.
Our day school will explore the vivid imageries and varied musical content of these compositions. Illustrations will be provided on excellent hi-fi equipment from recordings on compact disc, in a beautiful building whose acoustic is ideally suited to this music. To enjoy the day you won't need tehnical knowledge, simply an interest in learning about great music and enjoying it more as a result.

Buriton is a charming village nestling beside the South Down not far from the A3. The church was built by the Norman, though there is evidence that a settlement existed in the area long before. Buriton appears in the Doomsday Book as Mapledresham. The village has connections with Edward Gibbons and the famous political family, the Bonham Carters.
Buriton is clearly signposted off the A3 just south of Petersfield. It can also be reached by turning off the B2146, Sussex Road, as signposted east of Petersfield. In both cases follow the road through the village until you come to the church, where you may park beside the pond.
