Two into One : Keswick Hall Choir Saturday 27 April

St Peter Mancroft Church, Norwich, Saturday 27 April 2019, 7.30 pm
a joint concert with The Maidstone Singers (director Kathryn Ridgeway)

Our first collaboration with another choir will see us doing ‘home and away fixtures’. The concert will feature a variety of English music from the 15th-21st centuries, including a world première. The oldest piece, by Robert Wylkynson, in 13 vocal parts, is a setting of the Creed from the Eton Choirbook, a collection of music assembled around 1490. The newest will be a piece by Michael Lewis, in praise of St Cecilia, which will be sung by The Maidstone Singers. The main works in the programme are Britten’s setting of texts by W.H. Auden, Hymn to St Cecilia and Bob Chilcott’s The Making of the Drum, which will involve the choirs using various hand-held percussion instruments. There will also be pieces by Byrd, Gibbons, Pearsall and Purcell.

Tickets £12, £5 (students), £2 (under 14)
All tickets from St George’s Music Shop or www.ticketsource.co.uk/keswickhallchoir
