What follows is a rough schedule for the 2022 event. We will try to keep to these times so any audience know when to come in. There will be plenty of breaks during the rehearsal periods as and when the music directors see fit or when everyone has fallen asleep.
The roll calls will happen before each of the performance run-throughs. Half of the 'lost to cancer' roll call will be read out before the first Requiem, the other half before the second one. The survivors roll call will be read out before the last Requiem.
These timings are approximate and will be adjusted as needed as we go.
