500 Years of English Sacred Music

Our Spring concert, “Cathedral Classics” will take us from Thomas Tallis to Howard Goodall; from the earliest post-Reformation settings of English Bible verses to the Vicar of Dibley. Uplifting both to sing and to listen to, we hope you will join us in March at St John’s, Orwell Road.

The Seasons

In an unexpected change of role, Jean Shaw conducted the concert at St Andrew’s Church and did it superbly. We had a very nearly full house, which was pleasing, but the stars of the evening, from the audience’s point of view, were Marina and Alan, whose keyboard skills left people gasping.
