Thank you to everyone who came to our Essentially English concert at Tewkesbury Abbey on Saturday 18th May. The nave was packed with concertgoers enjoying our concert on a dry if slightly chill May evening. There was a splendid selection of music by English composers, Byrd, Elgar, Ireland, Howells, Finzi and Leighton both with organ and unaccompanied, all directed by our Conductor, Adrian Lucas.
That completes our season, but you can hear our choir ladies in Holst’s The Planets with Vladimir Ashkenazy at Symphony Hall on 15th June.
