At both our June concerts we will be performing a wide range of repertoire with our Musical Director Christopher Hann. Beautiful excerpts of works by Brahms, Rheinberger and Herbert Howells; a 6-part, and an 8-part, Crucifixus by Antonio Lotti; and some magnificent and powerful excerpts from Rachmaninov’s Vespers. On the lighter side, madrigals, the delightful ‘My Spirit Sang all Day’ (Finzi), works by the Kings Singers, ‘Queen’, and David Bowie; even one piece called Chili Con Carne!!

The choir are currently enjoying a short break over Half Term but are looking forward to all three of these dates and we do hope you will be able to join us.
