****** STOP PRESS ********
We are very sorry but we have postponed this concert due to coronavirus concerns both for our audience and choir members. We will reschedule the concert and will post here the new date, when appropriate.
If you already have tickets - hold onto them (whether paper or e-tickets) we will honour them when we reschedule.
***************************

We're on the move this spring! - This concert picks out songs from different countries.

John Rutter's collection of English Folk song settings - "Sprig of Thyme" - will be one of the items in the next concert. Also included will be Bob Chilcott's "Furusato" - a collection of settings of 5 Japanese songs (sung in English!) and Howard Goodall's settings of three Irish folk songs

John Rutter is best known for his Christmas Carol settings and Bob Chilcott for his more Jazzy based works. Howard Goodall has more public awareness due to his TV appearances and his setting of Psalm 23 "The Lord is my Shepherd" (which was used as the theme music for "The Vicar of Dibley").

So the concert will be full of some beautiful and easy listening tunes.
