Our Spring Concert is the first of 4 concerts in 2019 where the Choral Society celebrates its 45th Anniversary and we are delighted that it is to be held in the beautiful building of Polesworth Abbey on Saturday April 6th 2019, 7.30 pm.
The Choir has performed here many times before and we are delighted to return to this beautiful, historic and ancient building where Choral Music fits so appropriately.
This concert features Music from the English Choral Tradition. The programme includes Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs for Baritone Soloist and Valiant for Truth for choir. Other choir choral pieces are, ‘Rejoice in the Lamb’ by Benjamin Britten, John Rutter’s ‘Magnificat’ as well as the Choral Anthems ‘O hearken thou’ and ‘Give unto the Lord’ by Sir Edward Elgar.
In addition to these choral pieces we are delighted to include solo items from our two soloists. Katherine Liggins our soprano soloist will be singing @Seascape’ from ‘On the Island’ by Benjamin Britten and Andrew Randall will sing ‘SIlver Noon’ from the song cycle ‘The House of Life’ by Vaughan Williams
We are delighted to also welcome back Stephen Hargreaves (organist) who regularly accompanies the choir .
