On June 10 and 11, 2023, Rise Up Chorus along with our friends of the Somerset Hills Chorus (Music in the Somerset Hills) performed a stirring, emotional performance of James Whitbourn's masterwork oratorio, "Annelies" -- a musical setting of excerpts of the Diary of Anne Frank ("The Diary of a Young Girl").

From the composer, James Whitbourn:

"Annelies is a 75-minute choral work for soprano soloist, choir and instrumentalists. The libretto is compiled and translated by Melanie Challenger from The Diary of Anne Frank. Music is by James Whitbourn. Annelies is the full forename of Anne Frank, now commonly referred to by her abbreviated forename, Anne."
