We are delighted to present our next concert at St Mary’s Church, Kintbury where we will be joined by local organist Steve Bowey and a group of hand-picked professional soloists.

Louis Vierne is one of the great French organist composers that stretch from Csar Franck to Olivier Messiaen. His Messe Solennelle was originally written for two organs but was later adapted for a single organ.

Benjamin Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb for organ, choir and four soloists and has been widely recognised for its uniqueness and creativity in expressing the eccentricity of Smart’s text.

A Ceremony of Psalms by David Willcocks sets excerpts from the Psalms for choir, Baritone soloist and organ.
