St Mary’s Choir is inviting singers of all ages and abilities to join them for another Choral Open Day in St Mary’s Church on Saturday 28 April, 10.00 am to 5.00 pm. The day’s rehearsals will end at 4.00 pm with a sing-through of the repertoire to an invited audience, concluding at 5.00 pm. No charge will be made for the Day. Last year, over a hundred guests joined the choir to learn Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ and other anthems, and to gain an insight into the activities of a St Mary’s chorister. This year’s programme consists of mainly English Ceremonial music, including Parry’s ‘I Was Glad’, Handel’s ‘Zadok the Priest’ – and much more. A brass ensemble and the church organ will supply an inspiring accompaniment. Bring some lunch and copies of the music, if possible. Soup and light refreshments will be available during the day. Everyone welcome. Come and sing!
