Current Call for Singers
War and Peace
This programme takes us back to the comfortable surroundings of polyphony, with some contemporary offerings.
It plays on two saints' days celebrated in early October/late September: the great warrior St Michael, and the 'Make me a channel of Your peace' author St Francis of Assisi.
Saturday, 6 October, 7.30pm
Monday, 10 September, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Wednesday, 26 September, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Monday, 1 October, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Friday, 5 October, (!) 7pm - 9.30pm
Singing with the consort is subscription free. The printing contribution for this project is £25.
As for most of the concerts, a booklet with all the music will be produced, and singers get to keep all their music.
