Below are the dates for our upcoming concerts. More details of the programme for each concert will be added, so keep checking back to find out more!

Vaughan Williams: Mass in G minor

Vaughan Williams’s rich and impassioned Mass in G minor forms the centrepiece for this inspiring programme of music from the English choral tradition. English ‘pastoralism’, rooted in folk music, nostalgia, and a love of the English countryside, revolutionised British music in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, giving rise to some of the greatest church music ever written. Do not miss this concert of stirring pieces, several of them chosen by members of the choir.

Ralph Vaughan Williams – Mass in G minor
Charles Villiers Stanford – Three motets
Charles Wood – Hail, gladdening light
Charles Wood – O Thou the central orb
Herbert Whitton Sumsion – They that go down to the sea in ships
Gustav Holst – Turn back O man
Herbert Howells – Like as the hart

7.30pm Thursday 7th March – St Katharine Cree, London. Tickets are available on the door, or in advance from Eventbrite. Details can also be found on ConcertDiary
