Welcome to our website

Not long now until our next concert performances on March 22nd/23rd. 

 

We've got short bios for our three soloists for you to read here. If you were at our spring concert last year, you might remember our lovely soprano Anna Marmion. We're delighted to be singing with her again.

 

A real treat for fans of Handel as we're performing choruses/solos from Part 3 of 'The Messiah' and excerpts from 'Water Music'. 

We'll also be performing the very lovely  Schubert 'Mass in G' and Stanford's beautiful motet 'Justorum animae'.  You can listen to an earlier performance of the motet recorded at Histon Baptist Church on Monday 18th March - click here.

 

There are unexpected links between the pieces for the fact-fiends out there; 'Mass in G' and 'Justorum animae' have the same home tonality of 'G'. Stanford was born in Dublin, where 'Messiah' had its first performance; both Handel and Schubert were quick to compose these works - Schubert produced his lyrical  'Mass in G' in a week while Handel's masterpiece was written over a two-month period. 

 

Tickets are onsale - online, from Histon Library and from members of the Choir. 

 

We hope you will join us for this concert on either Friday 22nd or Saturday 23rd March - a feast for the ears.

 

 

Stop Press! - we have rescheduled our Choral Day event to avoid a clash with another similar event taking place on the same day. Our workshop on Elgar's 'Dream of Gernontius' will now take place on October 5th 2019 at Histon Baptist Church.
