Along with some old favourites, we'll be singing pieces by contemporary composers: from the popular Whitacre and Lauridsen, to the less well known Gjeilo and Esenvalds; on themes of light, the spheres, northen landscapes, sleep and dreaming. You will also hear two pieces played by the church's organist (and Byrd), Nigel Bird, as well as some solo items from our talented choristers.

Come along to this charming rural church and enjoy a short Sunday afternoon concert followed by refreshments in the nearby church hall. There will be a retiring collection in aid of the church's 'New Boiler' fund! We look forward to seeing you there.
