About the 2019-2020 Season

Come and Sing 2019

Our next Come and Sing is on Saturday 12 October from 1.30pm, when we will be singing  selection of popular choruses from the new book Sacred Choruses, under the direction of Paul Ellis, with Simon Clarkson at the organ.

Its editor, John Rutter, talks about how the volume was prepared and how the contents were chosen in this video:

A great opportunity to sing lots of favourites such as the Hallelujah Chorus and ‘I was glad’, as well as discovering a few less familiar works too. Our programme will include:

Brahms
Elgar
Handel
Handel 
Haydn
Haydn
Mendelssohn
Mozart
Parry 
How lovely are thy dwellings fair
The Spirit of the Lord
Hallelujah
Zadok the Priest
Insanae et vanae curae
The heavens are telling
Daughters of Zion
Laudate Dominum
