We broke our enforced silence with a glorious concert of Mozart’s music in St Alban’s Cathedral on the 16th October 2021. Directed by David Temple, we were joined by the wonderful combination of the London Orchestra da Camera, soloists Grace Davidson, Julia Doyle, Sam Furness and Dominic Sedgwick.
A soul-stirring rendition of Ave Verum Corpus set the scene, followed by the joyful Solemn Vespers and the heart-breakingly beautiful Mass in C Minor. The audience rose to their feet at the end of a concert that meant so much to everyone who had been deprived of high quality live music for so long.
Our next concert will be in Haileybury College Chapel on Sunday 19th December
We will hold two concerts on that day, at 4pm and 6pm. The programme will be a mixture of old and new arrangements of our favourite carols.
Tickets will be available from 1st November on
