2013 - our Diamond Jubilee

Our concert in October was an eclectic mix of music: sacred pieces in the first half, while the second included a tribute to Queen (the group not the monarch!), and theme tunes from James Bond films and TV programmes: Red Dwarf, Mr Bean and Black Adder.
 


  

In 2012 we also performed Mozart's Solemn Vespers in Niort

   


In 2011 our summer concert in Earls Barton Church included folk songs and medleys from West side Story and Les Miserables, which we sang again in St Mark’s, Wellingborough in the autumn, along with some sacred pieces including: If ye Love me (Tallis); Ave Verum Corpus (Mozart); and Bogoroditse Devo (Rachmaninov)
