The Britten Singers in concert at All Saints Church, Hereford
10:10am Friday 11th May 2012 in Music & Dance
THE Britten Singers will be performing their 216th concert on May 19 at 7.30pm in All Saints Church.
Founder Pamela White says that she is still amazed that the group has been flourishing, presenting music of many different styles since 1975.
Their spring concert this year will feature two works in very contrasting styles - the Mass for Four Voices by the great English composer William Byrd, whose compositions span the late 16th and early 17th centuries, which will be followed by the Gloria by Vivaldi, accompanied by an instrumental ensemble led by Stephen Brown.
Soloists in this work will be sopranos Elizabeth Allen and Jenni Axtell and Sebastian Field, alto.
Every year The Britten Singerss choose a charity to support and the profits for the concert will go to Acorns’ Children’s Hospice. There will be no charge for admission but a collection will be made for the charity.
