Our most recent concert

23 March 2024: 'Magnificat'

This concert was a 'study' of the Magnificat (the song of Mary when she learned that she was to give birth to the Son of God) as a musical form. It included magnificats by

Arvo Pärt
Henry Purcell (including the Nunc Dimittis)
Marcel Dupré
Thomas Walmisely (including the Nunc Dimittis)
Antonio Vivaldi
The Choral Society were accompanied by The Aylesbury Sinfonia with Colin Spinks on the Organ for the Dupré.
Our soloists included the fabulous Felicity Davies (Sop), Melissa Stewart (Sop), Janet Shell (Alto), Adam West (Ten) and Andrew Mayor (Bass).
