On Saturday 11 July, we should have been celebrating the end of our 51st season by performing a joint concert in Swindon with Aldbourne Band.
Instead, we have pulled together a selection of pieces, recorded by ourselves and others. These include some choir favourites, along with new items that you can look forward to hearing next season.
Following this you can hear a taste of what Aldbourne Band had in store for you with a set of six of their favourite pieces. We finish with the joint finale that we had hoped to perform alongside Aldbourne Band.
You can view this virtual concert below, or on YouTube.
